Damselflies Put On A Good Show.

Despite a rather cloudy afternoon there was activity around the Bouldnor Forest ponds yesterday. Common Darters are still emerging in good numbers and I disturbed plenty as I walked past the long grass and  gorse bushes that surround the ponds.Blue-tailed Damselflies are now evident with males at the pond edges as well as females in the margins.So too are the Emerald Damselflies although numbers are never particularly high.Other damselflies included Common Blue,Azure, and Large Red.The larger dragonflies were not to be seen due no doubt to the dull conditions.
