"Migrant Hawker"

The Migrant Hawker is a late season dragonfly, mostly active in September and is so named because they were once a non-resident of the UK, migrating here from Europe in occasional warm summers. When they mated and laid eggs here, the colony would usually last only a few years and would then die off, probably due to our cold winters, but now global warming has enabled them to breed here and continue successfully.
