Red-eyed Damselflies at Whixall Moss

By June 8, 2018 Blog

Stephen Barlow has recently spotted Red-eyed Damselflies at Whixall Moss -the first records at this location since 1986! As Stephen points out they have probably drifted across from the nearby canal -a more typical recording area for this species. The lower photo shows not only a lovely reflection, but a direct comparison with the Common Blue Damselfly sitting directly below the Red-eyed- a good chance to practice spot the difference!
