Southern Migrant (Blue-eyed Hawkers) at Alkborough Flats, first Lincs records

great find by ND yesterday when I dipped but reacted this morning and after about 90 minutes watching the male he suddenly flew up and grabbed a passing female -- what are the chances of that happening and us seeing it it happen and them then landing in the vegetation nearby briefly -- eventually remembered to take off he 1.4x converter but agains the reeds had to resort to manual focus which was in itself a challenge as eyes don't focus that quick! First records for Lincolnshire and the second new odes in a year with he Vagrant Emperors earlier in June
