Beautiful Demoiselles at still water sites…

By June 1, 2017Blog

I have visited a few still water sites in recent days and reasonably frequently encountered Beautiful Demoiselles. It was timely that Stephen Barlow then sent me this picture of the species seen at Whixall Moss….again seemingly some way from suitable habitat. Dave Barnett had also reported seeing Beautiful Demoiselles on still water near Bayton though the River Rea is at least close to where he saw them. Dave has sent in the 2 photos below. The shot on the left is particularly useful as both the male and female can be seen.
