New Species - Four-spotted Chaser

Thursday, June 14th 2012

The first dragonfly of the year was spotted by Ann as she and Elizabeth were leading a guided walk for U3A.  As identification was confirmed later in the day we realised it is yet another new species for the reserve!

This immature Four-spotted Chaser had only just emerged from her exuviae and can be identified by the tapering dark brown abdomen with yellow sides and the characteristic four spots on the wings.

Hunton and Arrathorne Primary School visited Foxglove today, and enjoyed pond dipping, a tree walk and minibeast safari.  Volunteers were also at work repairing the damage to some of the paths from the torrential rain we have experienced over the past few weeks.
