Busy at Bouldnor.

A good variety of species at Bouldnor Forest ponds today.The Black-tailed Skimmers are around the ponds with plenty of males patrolling and duelling with the male Broad-bodied Chasers over the water.Along the margins the Blue-tailed Damselflies and Azure Damselflies are searching for the females while in the surrounding gorse and long grass there are teneral Black-tailed Skimmers.A first sighting too of a teneral  Common Darter.
