Pysgodlyn Mawr Saturday 18th July

Led a dragonfly walk for the Wildlife Trust Bridgend group to Pysgodlyn Mawr on Saturday. The weather was lovely, if a bit windy, but we managed to see a good number of species.

Lots of azure and blue-tailed damsels and one large red damsel, a few four-spotted chaser, black-tailed skimmer, broad bodied chaser and a southern hawker in the ride in the woodland. I may also have seen a brief glimpse of a downy emerald but it was too fast to be 100% sure!

The highlight for me was the red-eyed damsels- there were a number of them on the wing and a few in cop. Have never seen them before so I was really pleased.

Record shot below from Margaret Samuels- the group were all very excited to see them too.
