Broad-bodied Chasers on the wing

By June 8, 2015Blog

Frustratingly things are still taking a while to get going! Records are drifting in of Common Blue Damselfly, Azure Damselfly, Beautiful and Banded Demoiselles and Large Red Damselfly as seen below photographed by P. Roberts near Woore, NW Shropshire. Nothing however is being reported in large numbers.

Broad-bodied Chaser Libellula Depressa has however been spotted – females seen by J.Groom in Bayston Hill Quarry and R & A. Knisely-Marpole at the Bog pond, Stiperstones on May 25th.
No photos as yet so I’ve taken the liberty of  posting R.Stokes fabulous shot of a male taken in 2014.
