Dragonflies and Damselflies

A big thank you to everyone who turned out for the SEWBReC dragonfly and damselfly training at Llanelly Hill today. The weather was kind for the afternoon field session that followed the mornings lecture. Seven species of odonata were recorded and well photographed by those in attendance, including black darter, four spotted chaser, common and southern hawker and scarce blue tailed damselfly. Other species noted include dark green fritillary and great crested newt. On return to our cars we bumped into two visiting freshwater ecologists on their way to do some caving and invertebrate recording in the Ogof draenen cave system. Apparently they've recorded some new species to Wales in the cave!
