Since we didn’t get a long trip away in the UK in spring this year, we went for broke and decided to hit France a week earlier than last year, half way through May. That meant an extravagant-sounding eight weeks. Our eight weeks were, however, a little more sedentary than normal, staying two weeks visiting friends, Mike & Linda, in the Marais Poitevin at Arçais and 3½ weeks at our favourite dairy sheep farm down south in Fanjeaux.
We did manage to drag ourselves to some new areas, though, and found a selection of new critters along the way. With a growing interest in the subject, the trip was always going to be a bit of an Odonata hunt.
