Llanilid Yesterday

Just a few Common Darters and Common Blues near the large pond at the entrance there was more activity in the form of butterflies; Common Blues, Wall, Painted Lady, Small Tortoiseshell, Gate-keepers, Meadow Browns and a Grayling. But I digress, I found a few small ponds which were full of Emerald Damselflies some in tandem also Common Blue and Blue-tailed Damselflies there were alot of Common darters here also, some of which were ovipositing. A single Common Hawker was patroling above the ponds.

On the larger pond/lake further over I found more than twenty Common Darters ovipositing plus one pair of Common Hawkers copulating. Others on and around the lake; Black-tailed Skimmer, Common Blue and Blue-tailed Damselflies.
