Common enough!

Just read that it is "one of the commonest Irish dragonflies". Guess I'm not very observant!

Very late

Very very late for a Four-spot, perhaps a late starter owing to cold spring.

Several

There were several about today but only one sitting still.

Spring

Try to find one in the Spring (early to mid May, if warm) they are superb then with nice bright colours.
