Cherchez les Demoiselles.

Since the first sighting of Beautiful Demoiselles at Shalfleet on the 11th May,many males have now matured and they can now be seen at a sunny spot over the stream in aerial combat with each other.It is quite a sight as maybe three or four adult males flutter around frantically with one another in their attempts to win the prime territory places.
The females of course prefer to take a ringside seat and watch from the bank before deciding on which to choose.
