Late Sepember Update

Still plenty of dragons flying, with Migrants, Common Darter and Ruddy Darter along with Common Blue and Blue-tailed Damselflies at Wilsons Pits on Wednesday 21 Sept. I also disturbed a teneral Darter that flew into the trees. I was hoping it was a Red-veined Darter as around now is the expected emergence time. I took a grab shot from quite a distance, but it was a Common Darter. Still, this is quite a late emergence although given the predictions of cold weather coming, its future may not be too bright.

Darryl visited Brackmills Industrial estate in Northampton and saw the following: 7 Migrants, including two males by the fishing pond, and at least two females hunting in the glades; 3+ Common Darter.
