Llanerch Wood 16/08/2015
After a long night moth trapping at Merthr Mawr Saturday/Sunday and not alot of sleep after, I decided to keep it local and spent a couple of hours at Llanerch Wood. Just like Howard last week there were plenty of Blue-tailed Damsels and a few Common Blues, I also found the Red-eyed Damsels on the lily pads with this pair ovipositing. On the Dragon front there was a male Emperor patroling both pools and a couple of male Common Darters on the foot-paths. As I was about to leave I found this male Beautiful Demoiselle perched on a small oak tree by the pool.
