Migrant / Common

Although superficially similar, the short antehumeral stripe, the pattern on the side of the thorax and abdominal spot pattern all suggest the Migrant Hawker.

Forgot to add the costa (leading edge of the wing) is dark in this specimen, in the Common Hawker it is yellow.

And a great picture.
