Migrant Hawkers start their take-over

Ditchford was buzzing with Migrant Hawkers this morning, and I guess there were around 80 males and at least 3 mating pairs. Activity was good in the sunny periods which also produced a single Emperor, many Common Blues and Blue-tails and a couple of Common Darters. A surprise was a single female Emerald Damselfly. This species is a regular visitor here, but doesn't breed.
