Hi Alun,
Interesting news about the possible Yellow-winged Darter; there have been a few seen in The Netherlands this year, though not huge numbers. It's perhaps worth mentioning that some Red-veined Darters can also show quite a lot of yellow at the base of the wing. I wonder if this individual will hang around?

Hi Adrian it was flying with the R.V.D and roughly the same size no bigger the lower part of the eyes frons were yellow and the yellow on the wings was spread out more along the wing and the top half of its body was a slightly darker yellow and a strong thick black line across the length needed a pic to sit down and have a good look at it just didn't have time on it at any onetime and could not get a pic to be 100percent still a lot flying at this site will look again when over there (most days) all the beat Alun ps if anyone is over there as you look down it was the right hand side pool in the long stretch between the pool and track
