Pluck Lake (SS669957)

male Black-tailed Skimmer
 At least 6 male Black-tailed Skimmers were patrolling the lake and flooded tracks at this location today often coming into conflict with Emperor Dragonfly.
tandem pair Red-eyed Damselfly
Also at least 3 Red-eyed Damselfly were observed in flight over open water. The tandem pair above and a single male were seen together; there may be more on the Lily pads but they're difficult to scan with bins - a telescope would be better.

Totals - Emperor(4m), Golden-ringed(1m), Black-tailed Skimmer(6m), Four-spotted Chaser(1), Common Darter(40), Red-eyed Damselfly(1p+1m) and Large Red(2). Blue-tailed, Azure and Common Blue Damselfly all present.
