Newbridge Waxies et al.

Well, I’m delighted to say they are still here and tonight indeed I counted 41!!! Where do they hide?  I spent a large amount of the day waiting and saw nothing save 5/6 flying past ,but patience finally rewarded . A bit of excitement yesterday when a fem Sprawk launched an assault , but very half hearted.They are BIG,when you are used to just the males.
