More records

Tony Vials reported seeing dozens of Banded Demoiselle on the River Nene at Irthlingborough Lakes, and I saw them too, about 15, the following day at Wadenhoe. Tony also reports seeing several Blue-tailed Damselflies, Common Blues and Red-eyed Damselflies as well as 2 Azures and 3 Hairy Drgaonflies.

More Hairys emerged at Ditchford this week, along with the usual damselflies.

Jeff Blincow reports seeing two Broad-bodied Chasers in the Yardley Hastings area, bringing the County total to 7 so far.
