What a beauty! This place sounds like it harbors a wonderful variety of fauna and flora.

It's part of a large pond system near Lake Constance once belonging to a wealthy abbey that needed lots of carps and trouts for lent. Historic farm estates, castles and churches from the baroque, wooded hills with forestry roads restricted to motor traffic inbetween. There is almost always something remarkable to find when we visit at any portion of it. This time it was a dragonfly we before only met in mediterran countries.

They colonize more and more of lower temperatured europe. They have been seen on your island, but are still considered rare and limited to the south as far as I know. In Gemany they showed up first as well in the last decade but they colonized the Rhine valley northward bound first. Behind the weather screen of the alps they are still a bit scarce even where there are suitable ponds, but the lake constance area is a warm pocket, so they obviously suddenly arrived and likely did so to stay. They say that expanses of the beauty's range are due to global warming.
