Scarce Blue-tailed Damselfly near Banwen

Scarce Blue-tailed Damselfly (Ischnura pumilio)
It was nice to find the Scarce Blue-tailed Damselflies that I came across last year were present in the same location this year. The pond that they favour is about 10m x 4m with a small amounts of marginal vegetation. The water is quite shallow and continually murky due to various off road vehicles that drive through it. In this case presenting very appealing conditions for this particular species. The pond can be found next to the Vale of Neath Walk about 1km from Banwen at SN85110897
