Shrewsbury - Common Clubtail

An early morning tyre change in Shrewsbury saw me well placed to check out for Common Clubtail emergence in the Quarry Park? After 90 mins of walking the river bank, I eventually found one :-) Sadly it was in a really dodgy spot, on vegetation over the precipitous river bank!

It hopped a bit to the left to give me a head on view...

The distinctly clubbed segments 8/9 and waisted S2 plus markings key this out as a male.

As I risked a soaking and stretched ever so carefully closer to get this!

Then it was gone...
