Hi Folks - I'm new to this blog! Wondered if you might be interested to see this photo that I popped onto ispot a few days ago. I'm no expert on these beasts, but I'm told it is probably the less common form of blue-tailed damsefly, form rufecens-obseleta??
I would also be interested to hear if anyone has practical knowledge of habitat requirements for Scarce Blue-tailed Damselfly - I'm in dialogue at the moment with the Council about how the public areas at Rhoose Point (which is a SINC) are managed, and apparently Scarce Blue-tailed damsels were present here a few years ago but have been lost. It would be nice to see if with appropriate management we can get them back again!
