Kirkstall canal

On Sunday we wandered down to the Leeds Liverpool Canal, joining at Wyther Lane car park near Kirkstall Brewery, it wasn't too long before the first dragonflies appeared. I'd guess they were Common Darters (12),  constantly on the wing and all managing to evade the camera. Luckily I was more successful with this Male Brown Hawker resting briefly on nettles along the canal pathway.   


A brief wander, with more pausing than wandering took us almost as far as  Forge locks before returning, enjoying numerous sightings of Common Blue and Blue Tailed damselflies along the way.
