With no more Honey Buzzard action we headed down hill to the Forge Valley. At the first stop we managed a distant male Beautiful Demoiselle, but it was at the second stop where we managed superb views of these cracking beasties. The sun brought the stream to life with 20+ Demoiselles, including several ovipositing females.
