Dragonflies in all National Trust Properties

Wherever you get a pond, you will usually get dragonflies. As well as flying up and down patrolling their territory, they can often be spotted perched on water-plants. However, I've also seen them on bushes, woods, and even in the meadows and lawns. They can often be seen sunning themselves on paths.
