Dragons and Damsels on Pevensey Levels

Outside, the rain looks set-in for the day and as autumn inevitably moves towards winter, it is nice to look back on some of my highlights of spring and summer. Coastal flats are a great habitat for dragonflies and damselflies and Pevensey Levels is a good place to watch them.
