Hi Stephen and thanks
So was it mostly Common Darters at Thursley at the mo? (Any Black Darters still around?
what are your new sites?
Hi Linda, Still a lot of Black Darters around alongside the Common's. Both species were see oviposting. There may be also some Ruddy Darters as well but I will have to look at my photos and books to see if they were actually Ruddy or Common. There were still some of the hawkers around, as well as a Golden-ringed that I managed a couple of photos of.
Chobham Common is one of the sites, a site that is mentioned in the Dragonflies Of Surrey book, but I have always stuck to the sites I know. Apparently the site is nearly as good as Thursley and well worth a visit.
The other site is Shepperton Ponds which I have never come across before. Handy for me as I work 10 minutes away in Walton-on-Thames. Would have been good to get down there at lunch today given the weather we are currently having, but work gets in the way.
