UK dragonfly & damselfly sightings 2020

This is likely to be a difficult year for dragonfly recording, but hopefully those of us who have access to ponds can keep some information flowing. Please feel free to contribute your own sightings, or news that you've seen elsewhere, and we can at least track the emergence of the different species even if we can't travel to go and see them ourselves.

First off, we have our first Large Red damsel of the year, on 25 March. No exact location is given, but the recorder works at Fishlake Meadows in Hampshire and has been tweeting urging people to stay away due to narrow paths so we can probably guess.

You're saying he was desperate to ensure he got the first Odonate of the year?
