Downy Emerald and Pearl-bordered Fritillary

Downy Emerald teneral ♀, Cordulia aenea
On April 20th I met Mark Colvin at Rewell Wood and photographed a Dor beetle. On May 1st on a club dig I found a medieval gilt mount, possibly from a harness, and a Nuremberg jeton c.1500-1700.
  On May 3rd I did my Mill Hill butterfly transect (Dingy Skipper 2, Grizzled Skipper 1, Peacock 6)  and then visited Woods Mill nature reserve where I found a newly emerged female Downy Emerald dragonfly.
  On May 4th we had our lunch at Woods Mill overlooking the lake and we saw a male Orange-tip and a Green-veined White. In the afternoon I visited Rewell Wood and found a new moth, Pale Feathered Bright (Incurvaria pectinea) and the first Pearl-bordered Fritillary of the season at Rewell.
