Raven – 24th July

This morning, during the Dragonfly Walk, two Ruddy Darters were found, along with Emperor, Brown Hawker, Black-tailed Skimmer, Banded Demoiselles, Blue-tailed and Common Blue Damselflies. Near the river three Ravens were seen flying from Radcliffe and going north. There was one moulting bird, presumably and adult, and two with perfect wings, presumed to be juveniles.  PS.

Hairy Dragonfly – 28th May

The warm weather has encouraged the Dragonflies and Damselflies to emerge and several species can be seen around the site. So far Banded Demoiselles, Common Blue Damselflies, Azure Damselflies, Blue-tailed Damselflies, Small Red-eyed Damselflies and Four-spotted Chasers have been seen. A rare species on site, the Large Red Damselfly has been seen twice and this afternoon a Hairy Dragonfly was seen for the first time on the site. RW. PS.
