Autumn activity

Still a few records coming in so if weather and time permit it's worth keeping an eye out for our later species. Common Darter Sympetrum striolatum have been seen recently by J.Groom at Devil's Dingle near Telford and also by A. Pickles at Preston Montford Field Centre as shown below:

P.Spear has also been back to Eardington NR on 20th October and saw numerous Common Darter copulating and ovipositing:

A passing Southern Hawker Aeshna cyanea wa also seen and a female Common Hawker Aeshna juncea ovipositing: 
This could be a good year for some exceptionally late sightings so do please keep me posted.
