2 May - Hairy Dragonflies were undergoing their characteristic synchronised emergence at Yardley Chase this morning, with over 10 emerged and a further 5 exuviae collected from just one pond.
Photos show an emergent at the hanging phase and a fully emerged female basking in the occasional sun.
Chris Emary reports 10 plus Large Red, 2 + Common Blue Damselfly and 10+ Azure from the River Tove at Greens Norton. Some of these being very blue indicating that they may well be a few days old.
