Radley lakes & Barton fields Tues 30th June

I had a walk around Radley lakes and Barton fields today mainly for the Dragonflies and Damselflies. A few Variable damselflies were still flying around the small pool near barton fields. I then walked along the river towards Radley lakes where I came across 6+ White-legged damselflies,all males in the vegetation next to the bank.
