White-faced Darter on the wing at Whixall

By April 26, 2021Blog

Sian Mercer has sent in the first 2021 photo of White-faced Darter seen during a morning stroll on 25th April. The photo shows an immature male with glassy wings typical of recently emerged individuals and immature coloration…the yellow patches eventually maturing to red in males. The photo also clearly shows the white frons area giving this species it’s common name.
