Volunteer Dragonfly Walk

Today (Monday 18th August), Roger Temple led a group of Eastern Moors volunteers on a dragonfly walk around Ramsley Reservoir and Jack Flat. The volunteers identified many species of dragonfly and damselfly, including the Common Blue, Azure and Emerald damselflies, and the Common Darter, Black Darter and huge Common Hawker dragonflies. A grass snake and an adder were even spotted! At first, there were concerns over if the weather would affect the amount of dragonflies flying, but it brightened up in time for a lovely lunch watching dragonflies at Jack Flat. A plant was found that puzzled us all, which was later identified as Sneezewort!
