Llanerch & Parc Slip

Overcast and a bit of a chill in the breeze at Llanerch this morning so not a lot about - some Blue-tailed and a couple of male Common Darter.

Not a lot more in the sunshine at Parc Slip this afternoon - Blue-tailed and Common Darter mainly, but also  Southern Hawker and (possibly) an Emerald Damselfly. Both the latter kept their distance so images are severe 'crops'.

Hi Howard,

Agree with the Emerald (its looking a bit worse for wear). The weather is certainly playing havoc with the Dragons this year, We could do with a couple of weeks of nice weather now to finish the season off.

All the best.

Thanks Mike. The only other Emerald that I've seen was a fresh looking female - very different. That was at Llanerch last year.
