Pond life

Today I spotted the first damselfly visiting the pond. A hawker flew over and away last autumn, but this blue-tailed damsel stuck around long enough for me to get a ropey photo of it. I'm assuming it's a visitor, but it might have come in with some weed as a nymph.

There were also a couple of spiders scurrying about on the surface with egg sacs in tow.

Two nice signs that the pond is becoming established.
