Common Darters still around

November 6th, 11 degrees and I still manged to find three Common Darters at Ditchford this afternoon. It was a lovely autumnal day with good low sunlight warming up the trees and logs around the lake. These males were perched soaking up the sun and one even caught a fly to eat. The latest date for Darters in Northants is 29th November, so there are still a few weeks to go and these males still look in good condition, so as long as there is a food source they may survive a little longer.
