Dragonfly identification New Book

I have bought a great new bookThis morning I literally chased a big dragonfly trying to take its photo but was thwarted by its speed and inability to stay still.

Using my new book I can say that it was a Hairy Hawker. These are the first Hawker dragonflies if the year on the wing and can be seen from April.

This was a scare species in decline post war but it’s numbers have increased and is found in mainly the Southern half of Britain.

I will be returning with a camera and not just my trusty phone to try an photograph this super flyer !
