Post Bentley Wood
I took a trip to Bentley Wood in Wiltshire with Paul Ritchie, who introduced me to a new location. A quiet and sun baked pond proved a great spot to spend a day without lots of walking around. Emperors, Ruddy Darters, Common Darters and Azure Damselflies were the dominant species, with a few Blue-tailed dotted around. As the day warmed up we were joined by a couple of Southern Hawkers who got into regular scraps with the resident Emperors, who were all starting to look a bit ragged! probably due to all the territorial disputes :)
