Breney Common

15th June 2017.

A super little nature reserve near Bodmin in Cornwall, an area of wetland, heath and scrub. I spent a morning here recently looking for the Marsh Fritillary Butterflies, no joy with these , but there were a few Small Bordered Fritillary on the wing, a widespread species in Cornwall, still always nice to see. Also quite a few Dragons and Damsels encountered, only managed photos of the Large Red Damselfly, a very common species , separated from the Small Red Damselfly by its black legs as opposed to the Smalls red legs.
