A First Black-tailed Skimmer.

At Bouldnor Forest ponds today there were good numbers of Large Red Damselflies and many Azure and Blue-tailed Damselflies emerging from the smaller ponds.Broad-bodied Chasers were also evident with several males and one or two females over the water.
It was not until waliking back along the forest track that I saw my first Black-tailed Skimmer of the year.This female was waiting patiently in the sun for prey.
