A very productive visit to the Neath Canal today produced a highlight of 17 Red-eyed Damselfly including at least 3 tandem pairs.

The vast majority of these sighting were taken along a 300m stretch of the Neath Canal between the railway bridge and the footbridge(next to the field with horses). The centre point grid ref SS74009598. All of the Red-eyed Damselfly were along here. I didn't have time to check SW of the railway bridge but that stretch looks equally good.
