Winging our way towards autumn…

By August 31, 2021Blog

Incredibly it’s September tomorrow, but judging by records coming in from the weekend there’s still a lot of dragonfly activity to be enjoyed. Miles Leach has been at a pond near the base of Brown Clee Hill enjoying Southern Hawkers (male beautifully pictured left and below left) and both Ruddy and Common Darters, the latter being shown in tandem below right.

Jan Shields has also sent in more great photos from The Bog, Stiperstones; a male Southern Hawker in flight (far below left) and a mating pair of Black Darters (far below right).These were seen alongside Emerald Damselflies, Migrant Hawker and Brown Hawker. Jan’s last 2 photos show a female Brown Hawker ovipositing, head on to illustrate those stunning wings and the a side view with a brilliant reflection!
