Returning from leave I’ve received lots of records and photographs and here are just a few.  A fabulous White-legged damselfly taken by David Williams on Kenley Common (left) and the aptly named Beautiful Demoiselle photographed by Ron Parnell on the River Onny where Banded Demoiselles were also on the wing.

Golden-ringed Dragonflies have also been captured head on by Andy Beech and at full stretch by Jan Shields -both seen on the Long Mynd.

Black Darters are also thriving. Andy Beech’s photo taken on the Long Mynd shows the diagnostic black triangle clearly on the top of the thorax and Jan Shield’s Whixall Moss photo shows a head on view of a teneral specimen.
