There are at least 6 large dragonfly nymphs in our small garden pond. For the last ten days or so, they have been spending increasing amounts of time partly out of the water. I suspect this means that they are ready to emerge. I don't know what species they are - the one I have seen most often in the garden in the past is the southern hawker, but we also get golden ringed dragonflies, common darters and broad bodied chasers. Unfortunately, I bet these are the hawker, which apparently usually emerges under cover of darkness.
