Jim Almond has pictured a female teneral White-legged Damselfly at a private site near Shrewsbury and elsewhere they have been seen emerging from the River Severn. Like Clubtails they can be seen right in the heart of Shrewsbury in the Quarry Park, so always worth a look! Other species are really starting to appear in greater numbers such as this fabulous female Four-spotted Chaser also photographed by Jim. Elsewhere Jan Shields has been watching White-faced Darters emerging at Whixall Moss and the aptly named Beautiful Demoiselles on the Reabrook. If you look at the demoiselle wings you can see the male has no pterostigma and the female has a splash of white coloration called a false pterostigma.
