Late Season Dragonflies

The pond at Clamerkin,Newtown could be described as my local patch as I have spent many happy hours watching the activities of the resident dragonflies and damselflies.
Even as late in the year as November and given some sunny weather dragonflies can be enjoyed here.
At this time Southern Hawkers are still present along with the autumn dragonfly,the Migrant Hawker. Perhaps the last dragonfly to be active and sometimes still on the wing into December is the Common Darter.
