Cosmeston today 14/09/2014

Nothing flying early morning until lunch time then the sun came out and the temp warmed up. Over by the pond to the left of the visitor centre there were 20+ Common Darters in tandem and nearly all were ovipositing with a few single males looking for partners.
Patroling around the pond edges were Three male Migrant Hawkers looking quite pristine.
I saw One female in the margins ovipositing and this pair copulating near by.
When leaving the pond the main boardwalk to the car park was awash with male Common Darters.
