Over Lancing Ring dewpond, I spent ten minutes or more watching three pairs of Broad-bodied Chasers dragonfly, Libellula depressa, chasing each other all over the pond. Occasionally one of them would dip on the surface of the murky water. On two occasions in-flight mating was observed for about ten seconds, possibly longer on the first occasion. Over McIntyres Field two dragonflies were observed in quick succession, the first one was brown in colour and thought to be the Hairy Dragonfly, Brachytron pratense, and the second one with a blue abdomen was almost certainly a Southern Hawker.
