Chasers at Crymlyn Bog
Broad-bodied Chaser (Libellula quadrimaculata)
An afternoon visit to Crymlyn Bog this afternoon was rewarding, with Broad-bodied Chaser, Four-spotted Chaser and also Hairy Dragonflies (Brachytron pratense) present showing in the small pools and wet fields around the carpark. At least 5 Broad-bodied Chasers were favouring the bushes around the wet fields.
Four-spotted Chaser (Libellula depressa)
At least 2 Four-spotted Chaser were found along the flooded ditch with 1 Hairy Dragonfly also patrolling along here. Not far from the carpark in one of the ponds accessed by via the boardwalk 6+ Hairy Dragonflies were present. A copulating pair and also a lone female ovipositing making up the numbers here.
