Hairy Dragonfly  - Brian Walker

Hairy Dragonfly Brachytron pratense is both our earliest flying and smallest hawker dragonfly and is on the wing in May and June.  Generally warmer spring weather has probably helped it to extend its range somewhat and occur in larger numbers.  Look for it in southern England and in Ireland on still or slow flowing waters with lush vegetation at the water’s edge.
