At Irthlingborough Lakes on Saturday 26 July, there were plenty of Black-tailed Skimmers, Ruddy Darters, Brown Hawkers, the usual damselflies and a few Emperors. I didn't see any adults, but found many Migrant Hawker exuviae although I have had a few adults buzzing around my garden.
At Tywell, Broad-bodied Chasers are still in evidence with a few Ruddy Darters and Emerald Damselflies.
The River Ise still has good numbers of White-legged Damselflies, both at Burton Latimer Pocket Park and the bridge at Harrowden. Many pairs ovipositing and in-cop at both sites. At the pocket park were also many Common Darters, Brown Hawkers, and Banded Demoiselle.
