Parc Slip New Scrapes

Managed to get some odonata spotting in whilst doing some maintenance in the new scrapes field at Parc Slip yesterday.

A solitary broad-bodied chaser, black-tailed skimmers, an emperor, plenty of darters (no bins to get close enough to I.D. them), emerald damsels, blue-tails, common blue and azures. The icing on the cake was a lovely male scarce blue-tail damsel and two bright orange immature females. Excuse the very poor photo- taken on my phone- but you can at least see how orange she is! 

Next sunny day, we will be heading into the new scrapes field to see what else has colonised.
