Some superb shots there! I had heard they had done well the past couple of years and was almost tempted to have a few days up there over the Christmas break. Think I will have to next Christmas now. Had a couple of trips up there following your great shots from there a few years ago. The first trip was excellent with loads if them but saw just one the following year and then found out about the squirrel pox getting most of them. Excellent news their numbers are back up again!!
Super shot Nigel! Saw my first of these in France too last year. Much earlier in the year though in early May so they must have two broods. I had been to the same site a couple of times in June when they didn't appear to be present so thought they only flew in spring. Clearly that's not the case, so maybe they just get lost amongst the many other different species that are present in June there.
Very nicely done indeed sir!
