Pysgodlyn Mawr

My first visit here for a long time, I used to fish here a long time ago. Alot on the wing today:
Broad-bodied Chaser
Four-spotted Chaser
Downy Emerald
Large Red Damsel
Azure and
There is another area to park with a shorter walk to the best spot for seeing the above, ST 0413 7629 its a pull in for a forestry track then cross the road and a path over a stile takes you straight to the pond.

Llanerch Wood

Not far from Pysgodlyn Mawr is Llanerch Vineyard (ST 0479 7976) where they have a wooded area and two cracking little ponds so I thought I would check them out, plenty of Damsels:
Large Red
Common Blue and
Blue-tailed Damselfly
Alot of the Blue-tailed Damselflies where either in tandem and ovipositing or forming a copulation wheel.
The only dragons I found were a male and female Broad-bodied Chaser. Well worth another visit.
