Amazingly this discreet rare Shropshire species has been seen at another new site! – this time Titterstone Clee Hill, recorded by Jason Kernohan along with Common Hawkers and Azure, Blue-tailed, Common Blue and Emerald Damselflies. The recorded male is pictured left clearly showing the diagnostic ochre coloured pterostigma. It would appear that Keeled Skimmer is having an interesting year so definitely keep an eye out for these unobtrusive fliers in acidic upland flush areas.
The purpose of this blog is to keep dragonfly enthusiasts up to date with dragonfly activity throughout the season. This way we should all know first hand what’s on the wing in Shropshire.
All are very welcome to be part of this seasonal diary. Get in touch at email@example.com with sightings and photographs so I can post them on the blog. Even if you’re new to dragonflies and not sure what you have photographed please send it in and get involved in the 2018 Shropshire Dragonfly Watch.
