More Hairys and Large Reds

I love the experience of walking along the side of a pond and witnessing 100's of tenerals taking their maiden flights. I was lucky enough to experience this on Saturday with many Large Reds emerging. I also encountered an emerging Hairys and a teneral female at Ditchford, but no sign of my predicted emergence of Common Blues, Red-eyes and Blue-tails, which I am sure will appear early next week.
