male Migrant Hawker
A late afternoon trip to Kenfig Pool, today, was fairly productive. The target being Ruddy Darter but, once again, I've failed to connect with this species. Two species were in abundance, Common Blue Damselfly and Migrant Hawker. Both species were providing an almost constant presence during a walk around the pool. I would easily put the number at 20+ Migrant Hawkers with three tandem wheels noticed, thought to be this species? The number of Common Blue Damselfly also seemed impressive given the time of year? A conservative estimate would put the figure at 200+
Totals : 1male Southern Hawker, 20+ Migrant Hawker, 30 Common Darter, 9 Emerald Damselfly, 6 Blue-tailed damselfly and 200+ Common Blue Damselfly
