Overall length : 50-55mm Hindwing : 34-37mm Flight period : End of May - Middle of August Status : South of England, Hampshire fortunately not to far from my home. Surrey Sussex also the basingstoke Canal along with river Wey. In south of scotland and in the Cairngorms? Comments : An absolutley stunning dragonfly, following the downy by about a month in emergence terms. tends to fly fairly low round the water margins but still slightly higher than the downy and is rather irritating in that when it does land normally its too high in the trees.
