Cosmeston Lakes 06/09/2015

After Lavernock Point I went to Cosmeston Lakes and the Dragonfly pond to the left of the visitors centre. Only a few Dragons about Blue-tailed and Azure Damsels, Common Darters and Two male Migrant Hawkers patroling the pond. In the pond I did get a glimpse of a Dragonfly Larvae, unable to identify from the photo (anyone care to have a go?).

Continued to walk around the rest of Cosmeston and found plenty of Common Darters sunning themselves away from the water, at the large Dragonfly pond two Hawkers fighting for control of the pond but too far away for clear ident. Although I did catch these Two male Common Darters basking on the sign which I thought was quite apt. On the way back to the car I came across this Male Emperor taking advantage of the sun.
