Four more species take to the skies…

It seems Whixall Moss is leading the way again with first sightings. As my pond in Shrewsbury is only just getting underway with good numbers of Large Red Damselflies and Four-spotted Chasers emerging, up at Whixall Stephen Barlow has seen Broad-bodied Chaser (left) on the wing, Banded Demoiselle, Beautiful Demoiselle (below left) and White-legged Damselfly (below right). The White-legged Damselfly is believed to be struggling in some parts of it’s distribution though it does well in Shropshire particularly around the canals. Always a lovely insect to see and good records to send into Vicky.
