Keeled Skimmer at Crymlyn Bog

male Keeled Skimmer
 A walk around the various Dragonfly areas at Crymlyn Bog, today, was rewarding. Quite apart from the dragons on view, this was the first time I have walked the new boardwalk since it was opened earlier this year. There are now a number of different areas which look good for odonata, and all fairly close to the centre car park.

Totals: 10+ Keeled Skimmer, 4 Common Hawker, 1 Emperor Dragonfly, 20 Common Darter, 20 Emerald Damselfly, 1 Blue-tailed Damselfly and 1 Common Blue Damselfly
