Dragonfly Week

I have never seen so many dragonflies in Rowney Woods as I saw today…literally hundreds of hawkers flying around, particularly over the fields of barley near the entrance to the woods. The hawkers were far too busy to settle so I had to content myself with this female Common Darter (Sympetrum striolatum) who stayed put long enough for me to photograph her.

As always – take my ID with a large pinch of salt…I’m regularly wrong – feel free to correct if you know 😉
