An Early Migrant Hawker

On the a visit to Bleak Down yesterday to see the Grayling  (see http://marmari2011.blogspot.co.uk/) I came across at least three Migrant Hawkers hunting along a narrow path leading to the Down.This small hawker will be seen until late autumn.
It is a common dragonfly on the Island and breeds on well vegetated lakes and ponds.
