The spring emergence is now under way with the first damselfies appearing at my garden pond.Around noon at least two Large Red Damselfies made their journey out of the water and onto the reeds.No doubt others will be following in due course.

First Large Red's of the Season.

After last week's short heat wave temperatures returned to the seasonal norm over the weekend.The first Large Red Damselflies to emerge did not take advantage  of the recent very warm weather,however today they decided to make their appearance.At the Old Pond situated next to the WW2 Bouldnor Battery there were around four individuals in the surrounding reeds and not too far away at least six more amongst the gorse.
