Hairy highway

With Spurn being so quiet, I decided to head back to Leven Canal to take advantage of the weather and count a few dragonflies and hopefully Hairy Dragons flying along the length of what I know as the Hairy highway!

An excellent afternoon with plenty to see:- 7 Large Red Damselfly, 3 Azure Damselfly, 1 Common Blue Damselfly, 4 Blue-tailed Damselfly, 78 Red-eyed Damselfly, 5+ Hairy Dragonfly and 28 Four-spotted Chaser.

The best way to see the Hairy Dragonflies at Leven is to park in near the small bridge at the end of Carr Lane, next to Leven Canal and walk west along the footpath to the north.

Also this evening from Langton, near Malton, an immature male Broad-bodied Chaser was on the wing.
