On 14th August 2013 one of our volunteers, John Luck, undertook a further dragonfly survey on the flood meadow. This is an annual survey, which charts the progress of different species and logs the difference in numbers from one year to the next.
“The group was particularly keen that I should visit the river stretch again this year, which I did. This produced the expected Banded demoiselles (in good numbers) plus a few Beautiful demoiselles, also a Migrant hawker. The river is quite fast flowing along this stretch so I cannot imagine reopening the meanders will do anything but good for Odonata.”
