Penallta & Parc Cwm Darran 03/07/2016

A few Dragonfly at the horse-shoe ponds at Penallta, a male Emperor patrolling a pool with a female Emperor ovipositing, also a male Broad-bodied Chaser on the same pool.

On the next pool were two female Four-spotted Chasers

There were a few Damsels about, Blue-tailed and Large Reds

Then onto PCD where they have dug out another pool next to the other two pools where again a male Emperor was patroling and a female Emperor was ovipositing, on the new pool two Broad-bodied Chasers were fighting over control. In the bank vegetation I found a male Keeled Skimmer.

There were also Damselflies here Large Reds some in tandem, Blue-tailed and Azure.
