Autumn Fliers.

Now that we are into autumn here,there are several dragonflies still to be encountered at our ponds and streams on the Isle of Wight.
Perhaps the most common is the Common Darter which is widespread and can be found in most habitats from sea cliffs to woods and all sizes of ponds.Another species is the Migrant Hawker.The males are often seen patrolling the marginal reeds in search of a female.
