Beautiful Demoiselle on Rea Brook

By May 7, 2014Blog

An interesting sighting of Beautiful Demoiselle made by Jonathan Groom today on the Rea Brook in Shrewsbury. No photo, but I couldn’t resist putting one in from the British Dragonfly Society as this is a stunning insect. There are only 2 records of this species previously made on this water body just south at Hook-a-gate. It would be useful to know if this species is actually breeding successfully on the Rea Brook so any photos/actual exuviae gratefully received! Early May and 5 species on the wing- marvellous!
