White-faced Darter in Woore!!

By May 21, 2020 Blog

Peter Roberts has amazingly recorded this female White-faced Darter on his garden furniture in Woore! This rare species is (usually!) only recorded at Whixall Moss in Shropshire where there are ample acidic bog pools full of sphagnum. This may well be a random odd record though it is some distance from Whixall Moss and this species is┬ánot known for it’s dispersal capabilities. Please keep your eyes open for any more strange sightings in an already bizarre year!
