In the mid 1950s, I was feeding our Hens, where they roamed free range in the size of an allotment. From memory I saw a Dragonfly, that cruised 6ft from the ground, and flew over the Hens. All of the Hens spread their wings 1/2 out and lowered themselves down to the ground, I presume they thought it was a bird of prey. I told a friend of mine and said that it was about 6inches long with a similar wings pan and its body was as thick as my little finger. He said impossible and explained the largest British Dragonfly known. Can you tell me please, was this an exaggeration on my part, from the impact of the event, or could it have been anywhere near true?
