Pysgodlyn Mawr & Llanerch Wood 05/06/2016

Warm and sunny which meant that the Dragons were vey active at Pysgodlyn Mawr, I did see Two Four-spotted Chasers along with Three Downy Emeralds but they did not come close enough for me to get a picture. There were the usual Damsels; Large Red, Azure and Blue-tailed with alot of them in tandem and in the cart-wheel position and some ovipositing.

Then moved on to Llanerch Wood where the Damsels were Red-Eyed, Azure and Blue-tailed with One Dragon a Male Broad-bodied Chaser.

Llanerch 02 June

A brief visit to Llanerch this morning - lots of Blue-tailed Damselflies and quite a few Azure around the larger pond. However on the smaller, western pond this changed to lots of Red-eyed - several in tandem and ovipositing.

Parc Cwm Darran 29/05/2016

After Penallta I had a look around PCD and again only found Large Red Damselflies and no other Damsels, although I did come across this Male Beautiful Demoiselle with the wings not properly formed.

I also found a Male Broad-bodied Chaser.

Penallta Parc 29/05/2016

Sunday I spent a few hours at the horse shoes ponds at Penallta where there were alot of Large Red Damselflies and no others. Although I did find a newly emerged Four-spotted Chaser and a Dragon Larvae (not yet identified).

I then moved on to P.C.D.
