Visited West Rise Marsh after and got a new Dragonfly in the form of a Lesser Emperor. A cracking male as well. At first it showed well often flying near to me but moving very fast so very difficult to photograph. After a while it became elusive as it moved onto the lake. It was best viewed on the south side of the main lake.
