Looking for dragonflies
After a very quiet start to the season, last week’s survey of PWNR turned out to be one of our best.
Some surprises included a Red-veined Darter (well done Dave) on the North Pools. It’s an uncommon species that comes across here from Europe. This seems to be a good year for them.
There was also Small Red-eyed Damsels (previously only seen on the Sanctuary pool) and Brown Hawker on one of the ponds in the grazing meadow.
We also spotted five Scarce Chasers close to the Seasonal Path rhyne during June’s survey. All very positive despite last year’s drought.
Here are a few other images from the day:
