Still slow out there

I had great hopes for today, with glorious warm sunshine, however it was not to be. Activity was very low and the hoped-for mass Hairy Dragonfly emergence failed to materialise. Still, I managed to see y first Large Reds of the year, but only after some considerable searching. The cold April and May is still having an influence on adult numbers, presumably because the water hasn't wrmed enough to stimulate emergence to any great extent.
