Broad-bodied Chasers are one of the first dragonflies to emerge in spring- easy to spot due to their large body size.
On summer days male Beautiful Demoiselles duel over the water ways for the best territory.
On warm autumn afternoons keep an eye out for small metallic green insect- the Emerald Damselflies.
