White-legged Damselflies at Whixall
Good to hear Whixall is busy with dragon and damselflies now that we've had some convincing summer weather! K.Lugg was still observing good numbers of White-faced Darters Leucorrhinia dubia last week as well as Large Red Damselflies Pyrrhosoma nymphula, Four-spotted Chasers Libellula quadrimaculata and Azure Damselflies Coenagrion puella. S. Barlow also reports about 18 White-legged Damselflies Platycnemis pennipes seen in the vegetation near Roundthorn Bridge on the Llangollen Canal.
