Downy Emerald in new location…

By June 4, 2020Blog

Tom Harwood has made an exciting discovery- a Downy Emerald seen on June 1st on the Llangollen Canal near Ellesmere. This is no where near the few known sites for this species in Shropshire which are largely on meres near Shrewsbury. Please keep an eye out for this fabulous species seen here in Tom’s photo. It would certainly be exciting news if this was more than a ‘one off’ sighting and they had established themselves on a water body in NW Shropshire.
