Paul Grennard visited the Baglan Industrial Area (as described below) today, and found this very nice aurantica phase Scarce Blue-tailed Damselfly. The bright orange colouration indicating it's an immature female.
Paul also called into the Neath Canal at Penrhiwtyn and found 3 male Red-eyed Damselfly in flight there.
