A couple more dragonflies

I live very close to Bystock Ponds (A Devon Wildlife Trust  reserve) on Woodbury Common so I popped in there after work – amazingly I haven’t been to this particular bit of Woodbury Common for over 30 years but I do remember working there in the early 1980s when I worked for Devon Wildlife Trust!

The reserve is a mix of heathland, grasslands, acid pools, streams and a small reservoir – it is in good condition and is very important for a wide range of acid loving species including some dragonflies. Here are a couple of pictures.
