In the afternoon, I took a walk along the Nene at Wadenhoe. Fewer than expected Banded Demoiselles were present along the river, with good numbers of Red-eyes on the lily pads. I counted around 15 Scarce Chaser, including one pair incop and around three emergent adults. All the males showed signs of the immature orange colouration through their blue pruinescence. I walked up to Achurch and through the rides to Lilford, hoping to find more immatures. Only one immature male was around along with a male Hairy Dragonfly.
