October 31st - An Afternoon in the Reserve

by Gill Cardy

A happy afternoon was spent in the reserve today looking for dragonflies. It was a sunny and quite warm day and the common darters and one or two Migrant Hawker dragonflies were busy making the most of the weather before winter is upon us.

We have recorded an amazing 15 different species this year - 6 Damselflies and 9 Dragonflies. Pictured below is an Azure Damselfly.
