Red-Eyed Damselfly(Erythromma Najas)

Not the commonest Damselfly to be found and when they do emerge they’ll often be over water on a lily pad

in terms of Brandon Marsh this Damselfly isn’t anywhere near abundant,they are there but in low numbers.when spotted they’re nearly always found near to the River Avon…A couple of us have actually seen Common Blue Damselflies attacking them as they try to leave their watery habitat.
