Snipe and other Ramsley residents

4 snipe in Ramsley old reservoir this morning.  I seem to see at least 2 every time I go there - which is quite often!
2 lapwings also seem to have made this their home.
Dragonflies are a little disappointing so far but I have seen 2 emperors in the long pool and several 4 spotted chasers.  Graham advises seeing a blue tailed skimmer and a golden ringed in Ramsley.  What I really want to see is the chunky broad bodied chaser, but time is running out!  Not seen one anywhere on the Eastern Moors this year.  Anyone else seen a dumpy blue dragonfly that looks like a mini jumbo jet?
