3rd June: Goring - Clubtail!

In the lovely fine weather, walked from Goring to the railway bridge and back. Had a brief view of a Clubtail somewhat before the bridge at SU603795. Unfortunately it flew off and vanished before I could get a good photo. Nevertheless, it is clearly a male (the secondary genitalia can be seen) and there is a tinge of green on the abdomen, which is a hint of maturity (not often seen)

Other species included many Banded Demoiselles, 1 Blue-tailed Damselfly and a few Red-eyed Damselflies.
