Small Red-eyes Now In Full Swing.

Activity at the garden pond in the village of Shalflleet is increasing with several mating pairs in addition to a number of ovipositing pairs in tandem. I would guess that numbers have not yet peaked as this is a thriving colony.The pond is now well covered in lily pads since the plants were thinned a couple of seasons ago.It seems that this species is happy with an almost choked pond covering.
