Spot fly and dragonflies

It's getting to that time of year when posts about migrant birds wane and posts about resident ones (or Summer breeders) & seasonal insects increase. Frankly I've not seen much of anything lately; I was hoping the recent warm weather would encourage a decent number of dragonflies to emerge but I've so far only seen two. One was a Scarce Chaser seen on Sunday and the other was an unidentified insect on Tuesday due to distant flight views only. A Spotted Flycatcher was nice to see on 23rd, a bird which used to breed in a few areas of Colyton but is now less easy (although definitely still expected) on patch; this was my first here of 2017...

Only recent photos are of House Martins which briefly sheltered from wind on the side of Island Hide on Saturday evening. Just look at those feet!
