DRAGONFLY: Black Darters and Emerald Damselflies at Foulshaw Moss, Cumbria

August 2, 2010:
Today, in one of the few local sunny spells for quite a long while, Black Darters and Emerald Damselflies were flying in good numbers, The Black Darters were mostly males but Emerald Damselflies ranged from emergent tenerals to mature ones. Common Blue, and Blue-tailed, Damselflies were also present, the former in large numbers, as well as an occasional Common Darter and a single patrolling Emperor.
