A lunchtime trip into Maridalen was supposed to deliver raptors but the tally stopped at a single Osprey. I plucked up the courage to visit the mystery warbler (after having heard the unmated Marsh at Kirkeby singing his heart out). I heard the mystery bird after some encouragement but he was as skulky as ever and did not show himself, not even in flight.

Dragon- and damselflies are now on the wing and I took more pictures of these than birds. I had some help with the ID and saw Four-spotted Chaser and Common Blue Damselfly.
Four-spotted Chaser (Firflekklibelle) Libellula quadrimaculata

Common Blue Damselfly (Stor blåvannymfe) Enallagma cyathigerum
