Norfolk Dragon invades Suffolk

Millennium Green came up trumps again today. Whilst on our almost daily walk, Scott Guiver (creator and writer of the blog 27butterflies) and I came across the wonderful Norfolk Hawkers patrolling the reeds.

These have got to have been the most aggressive dragonflies I have noticed the behaviour of so far. I noted that at least one of them was willing to tackle anything from moths, butterflies, damselflies and also the Four-spotted Chaser that dared to cross its path.

The Norfolk Hawkers with their green eyes and a yellow triangular mark on the second abdominal segment stood out and looked very different to the Chasers and the Hairy Dragonflies that we had been seeing on a regular basis throughout the last month or so.

The Four-spotted chasers didn’t want to miss out on the photo shoot and were happily sitting waiting for a piece of the action
