male Emerald Damselfly
Nick Edwards sent me a timely reminder, yesterday, to check out some of the more suitable wetland habitats that are part of the Gnoll Country Park. I was able to visit this afternoon and was pleasantly surprised by a few ponds, only recently created, at the lower part of the pitch & putt course (SS76579791). Incidentally, an interpretation panel placed next to the ponds does show a photo of a Small Red Damselfly, although it is unlikely that they will ever occur at this location. However, many of the more likely damselflies that are found locally, were on view.
