Predators on the wing…

By May 9, 2017Blog

Stephen Barlow has sent in some stunning photos of Stonechats feeding on Four-spotted Chasers up at Whixall Moss. Stephen reports that in this pair the female seems far more successful in gathering food for the young than the male and she is pictured here both with an unfortunate larva ( presumably intending to emerge!) and a full adult.

Hobbies were also putting in an appearance and the close ups of the talons on this predator as it approaches an unfortunate Large Red Damselfly are spectacular!
