Back For Another Look.

As the Red-veined Darter is such a rarity here we decided to return to the reservoir site visited last week and
just like our previous visit the Red-veins were not to be seen until late morning ,around eleven o'clock.Again we only saw males and no tenerals.
The reservoir is large and much of the bank is still bare ground so Black-tailed Skimmers are numerous.There were several mating pairs as well as the odd exuviae from recently emerged individuals.
