Bucks Southern Emerald Damselfly Info?

Saw this on BDS sightings page.

"Southern Emerald Damselfly
32 on small pond and adjacent scrubby footpath just off the A40 near the reclycing centre east of Beaconsfield."


Does anyone have any more info on this, specifically where the small pond is exactly? I think that this is the recycling centre here and there are several ponds nearby

TIA

Adam

Fascinating and tantalising record! Adam - did you get any more info at all?

There is a photo on Flickr - see here - ID looks good, but where is the site and how is it accessed?

Looking to head to the site on Wednesday so if anybody's any further news it'd be appreciated.

Otherwise, will report back on returning.

It's an open group so if you have a facebook account you will see it.

Wow thanks. That's very much contra the report from the BDS sightings page, of none on the same date at the usual pond. Perhaps a different pond?

There are actually two conflicting reports on the BDS site for 14th July:

“No Southern Emerald Damselfly at the usual pond 1km east of Beaconsfield”

“Well in excess of 50 Southern Emerald damselfly around the pond at southern (M40) end of the track running south from recycling centre. Over a dozen pairs in tandem and many individuals in the brambles and grasses along the track.”

Confusing, no? Either looking at two different ponds, or some mistake. Fortunately I’ve seen the species at the pool at Winterton, and have to look for Norfolk Hawker in Bedfordshire tomorrow anyway.
