Dorrigo to Yuraygir

20 January 2014

Left Dorrigo National Park after walking to the waterfalls in the morning — I sighted no dragonflies, but it was a coolish morning and rainforest species are less abundant.

By the afternoon I made it to Yuraygir National Park. Unfortunately the two large lakes that interested me are part of the local water supply and entry was prohibited so I got stuck at a little "puddle" beside the road. I did however see some interesting species, including a Rosy Skimmer Orthetrum migratum, which are rare in NSW. Another species I saw, which I thought was interesting at the time but probably just a variation of something I'd seen before, turned out to be Blue Slim damselfly Aciagrion fragile, a new species for me.
