We're gradually coming to the end of the Odonata flight season with only a handful of species still on the wing. Most activity is with the hawkers and the darters with Common Darter, Ruddy Darter, and Migrant Hawker responsible for over 90% of all sightings at the moment.
A LESSER EMPEROR continued on Restharrow Scrape whilst a Willow Emerald Damselfly was in the Haven and eight Emerald Damselflies and a Southern Migrant Hawker nearby.
