A minimum of 150 pairs of Southern Emerald Damselfly at a [PRIVATE] site near Beaconsfield. Nearly all were in tandem but with a few singles as well. Quite staggering numbers and coming up in 'clouds ' at my feet on the lower banks of the pond and also in the willows closeby. Until very recently they were along the footpath nearby but now they have all paired up and have returned to the pond, presumably to breed. (With R & S M)
*** Official BDS advice 20/07/2018 from Adrian Parr, David Hepper and the local Country Dragonfly Recorder:
This is a private site off a very busy road with limited parking. We know it is tempting but please do not visit as things are getting dangerous. We have been unable to make contact with the landowner. This could bring the BDS into disrepute.
