As June gives way to July

As we enter July, we begin to lose some of the Spring species and see the Summer species become dominant. Four-spotted Chasers and Broad-bodied Chasers are starting to look tatty, especially this male from Twywell!

Darryl Sutcliffe reports the first Common Darter, near Cottesbrooke and Alison Lowe saw the first Emerald Damselfly at Sulby.

At Twywell, Ruddy Darters have begun emerge too.
