Meadowhawk update

Just a quick update re Variegated Meadowhawk Sympetrum corruptum (Sympétrum bagarreur) at St-Lazare sand pits. three to five have been seen daily, usually between 09.30-12.00 in the same place. All were newly emerged tenerals. If you are interested in taking a look, the directions are as follows.

From the Cites des Jeunes between St-Clet and St-Lazare take Chemin Robert north. At the top of the hill there is an industrial site on the left and a rough road turns left after (Ch Lotbiniere). If there is room to park clear of the gates then stop here. If not park in the soccer pitch car park 100m further along Ch Robert. Put $2 per person through the letterbox in the door of the arched building and then go through the steel gates down into the complex. You will see an obvious causeway leading right and bisecting the lakes. The meadowhawks are either side of the causeway (but mostly the right side), usually in the grasses and they need flushing.

If you visit I’d appreciate feedback – number of insects seen, any adult seen and, especially, any adults ovipositing. Good luck.

      Are you talking about at St-Lazare sand pits Larry? If so it is the arched building tot he right of the gate, htere is a door with a letter box. If you don’t pay there M. Meloche will probably stop you at some point and you can pay him then.
