Migrant Hawker on the wing…

Stephen Barlow has seen 2 Migrant Hawker on Prees Heath. Firstly a male flying past and then a female who conveniently stopped for a photo. The picture shows the distinctive long anal appendages of the female. The reduced antehumeral stripes and the golf tee shape on segment 2 of the abdomen are diagnostic of this species and also seen on the males.
