At Powerstock there are several ponds dotted around the reserve, we found three yesterday, all different from each other; the first was very clear, the second was covered in Duck weed, the third was full of Bogbean. At two of them, there were quite large dragonflies flying around, the Four-spotted Chaser. These dragonflies were constantly on the move, chasing off rivals, mating and laying eggs, no time to stop and rest for too long, time is very short for them.
Bogbean, which was in one of the ponds
Newts. This pond was so clear that you could see all the newts swimming around
