Late Season Visit to Bouldnor Ponds.


 At Bouldnor Forest ponds today the Common Darters were prominent with many males and egg laying pairs.Not surprising of course at this time of the season, although I was more than happy to see at least four male Emerald Damselflies vying for the best spot among some pondside reeds.The odd  male Southern and Migrant Hawkers were patrolling the ponds and rustling about in the bulrushes, several ovipositing female Migrant Hawkers.
