So things really got underway just as I headed out of the county! Stephen Barlow saw the first White-faced Darters emerging on 4th May and captured this photo of a teneral female. Large Red Damselflies were also on the wing at Whixall Moss and the following day Stephen also saw the first Shropshire Four-spotted Chaser of 2018. The following week on May 10th Azure Damselflies were seen at Whixall Moss and Stephen sent in this lovely shot of a teneral female. Whixall Moss always seems to be the first place to show significant activity of adult dragon and damselflies though other locations soon catch up and I certainly have Azure Damselflies on the pond in Shrewsbury now.
