Penallta Park 23/08/2016

On Sunday I went to Lavernock NR but only saw a single male Common Darter (very windy and overcast) then moved onto Cosmeston Lakes but did not get a chance to go around as rain stopped play.
At Penallta on Tuesday things were alot better although a bit breezy the Dragons were about. A few Emerald and Blue-tailed Damsels were at the horse-shoe ponds with alot of Common Darters, some in tandem and some ovipositing. On one pond a male Southern Hawker was hunting, a female Southern Hawker and female Common Hawker were ovipositing.
Taking a walk around the many paths I found another female Southern Hawker resting on a bush and a male Golden-ringed hunting over a patch of bramble.

I then moved onto PCD.
