A very late Common Darter at Brockholes Wetlands, Lancashire

November 24, 2011:
A cool blustery day here today but a very late-season Common Darter was still about. Seemingly in good condition depite the damage to its right hind-wing, it perched for a while and then flew off. November 24 is a very late local record.


  1. Is there any record of when the latest has been ?

  2. The Lancashire Dragonfly Recorder tells me that November 15, 2007 was his latest county record.

  3. I'm up in Northumberland and was quite excited to see a Common Darter on the 12th.
