At the back of the Bramble hedge. I had to climb through to get behind this big dragonfly for a shot

thanks Chris. My slow old laptop at home won't load your site properly (I'm lucky to load the nbn map), I usually have to use a friend's proper pc and 5ft screen down in hackney to look for ids on it, and I couldn't wait.
This is the biggest thing in the park so far, everything big seems to be drawn to this one bramble thicket at the moment, with the park's pair of Thick-headed flies making it their base. The Hawker was just hanging there, right up by the back hedge, there's now a trampled swathe through the middle where I had to go through straight brambles above the waist. I'm fairly certain you'd know just what I mean..

Stinging nettles are the other problem, I have spent many a day grimacing with pain in the pursuit of a good image.
Southern Hawkers are common in parks and gardens, my friend had 20+ emerge from his tiny garden pond in a couple of days.
