On Sunday 13th August, I visited several of the canal sites in Surrey.
Construction work at Compasses Bridge has only recently been completed, so it was good to see several species of wildlife here. There were Common Darter (see photo), Southern Hawker & Brown Hawker dragonflies, Common Blue damselflies, Red Admiral & Small White butterflies.
At Tickners Heath, I saw a Common Blue (see photo) and several Speckled Wood butterflies. I was pleasantly surprised to see a Kingfisher and Grey Heron, unfortunately they flew away before I was able to take a photo.
