Bank Holiday Activity

After completing the morning's chores, I managed an hour at Ditchford. This was time to find a number of emerging Red-eyed Damselflies, Blue-tailed Damselflies and a single Common Blue Damselfly. There were also a handful of emerging Hairy Dragonflies too.

At about the same time, John Windust found Banded Demoiselles on the River Nene at Higham Ferrers.

This adds 4 new species to the County in the same day.
