More Dragonfly Encounters

Back on Pevensey Levels, the number of dragonflies on the wing has been increasing. The Hairy Dragonfly (Brachytrons pratense) is probably reaching peak numbers now and there has been a noticeable increase in the emergence of Four-spotted Chaser (Libellula quadrimaculata), including several examples of the variant form praenubila.
