Nice site/sight

Coldwater Ponds are a couple of nice artificial fishing lakes at Llanelly Hill. Surrounded in semi -improved grassland complete with ringlets, small skippers and meadow browns the water bodies are characterised by an abundant population of fringed water lily. Ideal for odonata therefore with large red, blue tailed and azure damselflies dominating, along with several rather territorial four spotted chasers. There were also several hawker dragonflies on the wing which proved tricky to identify but were likely to be common hawker.
