A White-letter Hairstreak was in an elm by the River Nidd at Goldsborough this morning. Also there were a small number of Banded Demoiselles at the farmers pond on Midgeley Lane. Across the field from the pond on the River Nidd there were well over a hundred Demoiselles.

Just a quick note about the HDNS Nightjar Walk last night at Stainburn Forest, Little Almscliffe. The official report will be on the website. We had up to three Nightjars after 10.00 pm and surprisingly an Osprey flew across the clearing from the south heading north west at 10.15 pm. Also numerous Woodcock along the length of the walk.
