I'm so used to seeing common darters on the pathways at Burton Mere that I took a couple of shots of what I thought was yet another without really looking. I was pleasantly surprised when I downloaded the images and discovered this little beauty. First I've ever seen, but the BDS site reports it is extending its range northwards.

Many thanks. Quite often catch dragonfly on them - it's a gravel path - presumably they get nice and warm.
