November Darters

The last month of the dragonfly season in Northants, is now upon us, and started with 6 Common Darters recorded at Ditchford on the 1st. I had hoped to find at least one Migrant Hawker but despite reasonable weather conditions they failed to show. Terry & Judy Wood saw one at Barnwell Country Park on 31 Oct so I expect some are still around, waiting to be seen.

I would love this to be the year that we get a Darter record into December, and with the warm spell recently this might just be possible.
