The Migrant Hawker is one of the smaller species of hawker dragonflies. It can be found away from water but for breeding it prefers still or slow-flowing water and can tolerate brackish sites. The flight period is from July to the end of October. ''A. mixta'' occurs in North Africa, southern and central Europe to the Baltic region.
