The northwest corner of the King's Dyke complex had a few sunny areas rich in nettles and protected from the wind where Azure Damselflies were swarming in numbers. Also one Variable, a couple of Common blue and a Blue-tailed Damselfly here plus two Four-spotted Chasers and a Hairy Dragonfly. Other insects included plenty of Orange-tips, Nettle-tap moth and the hoverflies Baccha elongata and Rhingia campestris.
