Stephen Barlow has sent in this stunning landscape of Whixall Moss with snow on the distant hills and ice on the ponds! Who’d have thought on the same day (10th Nov) he would see the 3 individuals pictured below. Basking in a sheltered suntrap were a male Black Darter (left) and a male (centre) and female (right) Common Darter. Great late records…so keep an eye out on the offchance!
The purpose of this blog is to keep dragonfly enthusiasts up to date with dragonfly activity throughout the season. This way we should all know first hand what’s on the wing in Shropshire.
All are very welcome to be part of this seasonal diary. Get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org with sightings and photographs so I can post them on the blog. Even if you’re new to dragonflies and not sure what you have photographed please send it in and get involved in the 2020 Shropshire Dragonfly Watch.
