Continued on the Dragon hunt with a wander around the east end of Big Waters including its outlet stream, which looks spot on for Dragonfly.
Only when we were at the east end of the lake did we see Common Hawker, Common Darter and possibly an Emperor. The outlet stream showed Damselfly and only a single Common Darter.
However, this stunner, a female Southern hawker ( I had earlier wrongly identified as a Common hawker), flew around our heads for ten minutes returning time and again to alight on the same Hawthorn bush. Just magic.
These are sections of the Big Waters outlet stream.
