Spring is in the air…

Inspired by the warmth in the sun yesterday I was sifting a few leaves off the garden pond and unexpectedly pulled out a number of larvae; 2 huge chasers and a good few Large Red Damselflies. I was surprised how mature they all looked and thought I better give you all the heads up. Obviously I returned them all to the pond, but I’m definitely keeping a close eye! This lovely photo of Large Red Damselfly is from Jan Shields last year…but I’m hoping to see something similar peaking around the vegetation in the not too distant. Please let me know¬† if you see the start of the Shropshire flight season…
