Beautiful Raspberry red male.
No interactions present.
Can I just check the date of the observation please, it's confused me as it's far too early for a Darter Dragonfly, unless it's got badly blown off course from foreign parts.

Hi Chris, the date is correct; photograph was taken at 13.35 in Bournemouth Gardens where the Bourne Stream runs through. Temperature locally has been 28C, wind 18 MPH from the east.
It's clearly a migrant. An excellent find.
