Red-eyed Damselflies at Neath Canal
The total numbers did seem a little low but this was not helped by only brief spells of sunshine during my visit. This stretch of the canal was sheltered from the wind today and it remained warm even when the sun wasn't shining, and many of the species were still active under cloudy conditions.
Highlight - Red-eyed Damselfly (22)
Also, Beautiful Demoiselle (1), Azure Damselfly (7), Variable Damselfly (15), Common Blue Damselfly (13), Blue-tailed Damselfly (12), Hairy Damselfly (24) & Darter sp. (1)
