Lovely to see Mary Combe back at the site today. Mary is from the Farming and Wildlife Advisory Group (FWAG) and is our David Bellamy Award Assessor this year.

During the visit, we were lucky enough to spot some dragonflies and damselflies on the new pond, one of which I managed to snap later as it rested on a lily leaf.

A little investigation on the internet reveals that this is a male Libellula Depressa - Broad-bodied Chaser. The habitat description includes 'this dragonfly is usually found at ponds and may be the first to colonise new ponds.'

Well, it has done just that! Welcome to Lower Treave Libellula Depressa, and thank you Mary for a most enjoyable and informative visit.
