Looked at a number of the pools around the parc the first ones were the horse-shoe pools(7), there were alot of Damsels: Large Reds, Azures and Blue-tailed. Each pool had at least One Male Broad-bodied Chaser patroling with Three pools having a Female also, Two of the pools also had Male Four-spotted Chasers.

All the Female Broad-bodied Chasers were ovipositing.
