A Slow Start at a Local Pond.

This time last year the Red-eyed Damselflies were emerging from Dicksons pond near Newport.No such luck this year no doubt because of the poor weather of early spring.In fact no odonata were seen and the only sign of any dragonfly activity was this excuvia found on a bankside reed stem.This is the nymph case of a Broad-bodied Chaser,a common dragonfly at this time.
