More Hairy Dragonflies

After Jim's sighting on Saturday, I went to Ditchford at lunchtime looking for more Hairy Dragonflies. I came across 6 all at the same stage of their emergence and a mix of male and female. At this time of the season, they emerge very low down as the emergent reed growth isn't great, so you need to look close to the water and deep into the reeds.
