At Last!

The first odonata of the year in Wiltshire was reported today by Wayne Clinch. He found a teneral Large Red Damselfly on the North Wilts Canal at Mouldon Hill Country Park in Swindon. He also managed to photograph it for good measure!
If this warm spell continues [which it seems set to do for a few days at least] then more should be found at other sites around the county; with other species, hopefully, following hot on it's heels.


  1. Lovely. Don't know when we will start to see them in Northumberland.

  2. Probably be another week or so yet for you Emma - and that's if you get some decent weather. Global wetting in action?
