Thankyou aeshna I,ve never heard of a brown hawker before so thats pleaseing In Itself, UPDATE ... I see they are quite a common dragonflie in the central regions of the uk but more so In the south east and this being a male not a female, I have witnessed this Dragonflie before In my garden during this time of the year but Its not Often they settle.
