5-6 April - Cuc Phuong National Park

I travelled this weekend to Cuc Phuong with my birding pal and great friend Hein from the Netherlands. For birds. But we did see a few dragonflies along the way, some of it interesting because they are first observations for the season for me and indicate the length of the flight season.

Saturday was not very interesting, as it was mostly cloudy, but we did see Anax guttatus, 1 male and Cratilla liniata, Copera ciliata, C. marginipes, Pantala flavescens, Paracercion calamarum. Sunday brought the following: Epophthalmia elegans (2), Pantala flavescens, Diplacodes trivialis, Orthetrum sabina, O. pruinosum, Paracercion calamorum, Copera marginipes, C. ciliata, Brachythemis contaminata, Trithemis aurora, Crocothemis servilia, Hydrobasileus croceus (6), Tramea virginia (1), Ictinogomphus pertinax (2), Rhyothemis variagata (3), Neurobasis chinensis.

Quite pleased with Tramea and Hydrobasileus!
