This would be a bit early for a mature male Southern Hawker. It would also have a waisted abdomen with green spots except for blue markings on S8-10.

Thanks Chris. Wasn't expecting it, the hairs so hard to spot, & collins wild guide said for males yellow stripes on thorax
Hi Chris, I would have said the stripes were yellow but it might be my ageing eyes. Attached is a link to some images of the Southern Hawker. I haven't got any of the Hairy Dragonfly, it's a species that has eluded my camera, so you're lucky to get this shot. Regards Chris.
I see I should have checked male cyanea images as your differences, waist etc are very evident, Mea Culpa! On the stripe colour, though it still looks green to me (I've even found a site http://www.habitas.org.uk/dragonflyireland/5622.htm describe them as green ) but they do mostly look yellow in http://www.dragonflypix.com/speciespages/brachytron_pratense.html .Many thanks again for your help.
