Latest news on Odonata sightings and recording progress in Wiltshire.
Tuesday, 6 May 2014
At last, one observer has finally proved breeding of Hairy Dragonfly in Wiltshire! After several years of the odd sighting of flying adults an exuvia was found yesterday on Yellow Flag emerging from the northern margin of Swillbrook Lake, close to the footpath. Although in administrative Gloucestershire this site is in North Wilts VC7. Maybe over the next few days more will emerge or adults will be seen on the wing...or both! This is also the first breeding record for the Cotswold Water Park.
