Migrant Hawker on Threatened Allotments

Apologies for the recent lack of posts – but back in business today with a good photo from a guest contributor…..

Aeshna Mixta Migrant Hawker Dragonfly Male

This is a male Migrant Hawker Dragonfly (Aeshna mixta), photographed on the Radford Bridge Road Allotments.  It forms a nice counterpart to the female of the same species I featured recently.

Thanks to Vivien for the photo – and best wishes to the campaign to preserve the allotments.
