Red-eyed Damselfly at Southfields Farm Marsh

I took a walk up to Southfields Farm Marsh this lunchtime, without the camera. It was sunny but with a cool breeze. I managed to see a Large Red and Banded Demoiselle on the River Ise and at the marsh, Azure Damselflies, Large Red, Blue-tailed and a single teneral Red-eyed Damselfly. This makes our total 8 species before the end of April, which is the same as the record year of 2007. It is possible that Broad-bodied Chaser may also be out somewhere, so keep those eyes peeled around small shallow ponds (especially garden ponds).
