Darryl Sutcliffe reports seeing 2 male Brown Hawkers at Pitsford Reservoir on 22 September 2013, plus Migrant Hawkers, Common Darters at the River Ise Brook in Kettering.
On the same day, Stuart Page reports a single Blue-tailed Damselfly at Ditchford.
Barnwell Country Park was buzzing with activity on 26 Sept, where Terry Wood reports seeing Common Darter, Ruddy Darter, Migrant Hawker, Southern Hawker and Brown Hawker - an good number of species for early Autumn!
At Ditchford, the cooler conditions have reduced numbers, but there are still plenty of Migrant Hawkers and Common Darters around. I was also pleasantly surprised to find a handful of male Common Blue Damselflies. No females, though I am sure there are some around.
