14 degrees C and four species flying at Ditchford

The weather really is changing and this lunchtime it was only 14 degrees at Dtichford, with some sun. Still, four species were flying in these cool temperatures: Migrant Hawker, Brown Hawker, Common Darter and Common Blue Damselfly. I suspect that this year won't be noteworthy for late sightings, although Anglia News weather said temperatures are set to reach 22 degrees next week!

Yesterday (16th), Doug Goddard and Bob Bullock saw an Emerald Damselfly. This is a good late date, despite the cooling weather.
