Blue-tailed Damselfly (Ischnura elegans) ♀.

I found my first Blue-tailed Damselfly today at the Semington Bypass balancing ponds just south of Melksham. I could only find the one which was an immature female of the C-type [as described in Dijkstra and Lewington].
This brings the tally to 2 species, but still no dragonflies yet even though 4-spot and Broad-bodied Chaser and Hairy Dragonfly have been seen in other counties!
