Not a water vole in sight

The real purpose for a trip to Magor Marsh was for a red veined darter rather than a sight of the reintroducted water vole. As it happened neither were found which was something of a disappointment given the Severnside Birds site is reporting hundreds of the red veined darter from Severn Beach at the moment. However there were a good number of ruddy darter on show and a late longhorn beetle Leptura quadrifasciata.
