A Saturday Walk on the Reserve

Sarah and I decided to go for a walk to the Nature Reserve on a fine September Saturday, although we only saw limited wildlife it was great to get out and about, the images below are just a few things we saw.
I think the Dragonfly is a Ruddy but it could also be a Common Darter??

A Common Lizard ( Lacerta vivipara )

Common Darter ( Sympetrum sanguineum )

Yellow Wagtail ( Motacilla flava )

Broad-Bodied-Chaser ( Libellula depressa )

A Lovely hot September day at Windmill Farm Nature Reserve, Dragonfly pools.
Spent a very hard hour trying to photograph these with a telephone lens not a Macro, next time i must take my macro lens.
Oh well i did manage to photograph several SparrowHawks getting mobbed my Hirundines!! 

Maybe a Couple of Ruddy or Common darters, HELP??
