Dragonflies and Damselflies

4 spot chaser by Steve Jones

This field trip serves not only as an introduction to Dragonflies and Damselflies and their ecology and habitat requirements but as a useful guide to surveying skill and an opportunity to see the BAP species Scarce Blue-tailed Damselfly Ischnura pumilio and Small Red Damselfly Ceriagrion tenellum. The old tin streaming beds of the Red River Valley Local Nature Reserve provide us with a range of habitats to investigate and a wide range of species to recognise
and record.

Join the British Dragonfly Society's recorder Steve Jones in this very popular and informative day learning how to recognise and record these charismatic insects.
