18 Jun 22 - #30DaysWild Day 18 - Small Red Damselfly

I spent a couple of hours wandering around Littlesea, Studland looking for Dragonflies. I was hoping for a Norfolk Hawker which are now well established in the Weymouth area, but maybe Littlesea is the wrong habitat for them. However, there were a good number of Black-tailed Skimmers, along with small numbers of Four-spotted Chasers, Azure Damselflies, Large Red Damselflies & this single Small Red Damselfly.
Small Red Damselfly: They don't appear until the Summer, unlike the Large Red Damselflies which have been flying for the best part of a couple of months already
