When visiting Swindon for work a couple of days ago, I was very close to Coate Water Park so I decided to pay a brief visit at lunchtime. This is what I think is a recently emerged four spot chaser that I saw drying out its wings at the edge of one of the lakes. I saw several other dragonflies that had recently hatched as well as a number of damselflies during my short time there.
