Am trying to get a handle on the location of Dragonflies around a number of locations.
I started out being really optimistic having earlier located many Damselfly in just about every spot I looked and in great numbers - Stannington, Gosforth Park, Havannah, Blaydon, Gibside, Prestwick Carr, Banks Pond, Big Waters.
But although this warm weather turned up, The Dragons hav'nt. At least not yet in any great numbers.
Only Banks Pond, and Big Waters have come up with the goods so far, but we shall press on.
Yesterday, Banks Pond had at least two Emperor as well as Four spotted Chaser
The Emperor's just would not alight. Watched a pair for 30 minutes and never saw them stop yet.
