Introduction to Dragonflies and Damselflies
This course is aimed at all those with a desire to learn more about these stunning insects. You will be introduced close up to a good number of our Shropshire species of dragonfly and damselfly so that you leave confident in your own abilities to identify them and make species records. Classroom sessions on identification, life history, larvae and exuviae will be combined with a number of field visits to a range of aquatic habitats. This will allow you to put your skills into practice and to observe and understand the visual spectacle of these fascinating insects on the wing.
Tutor: Sue Rees Evans (formerly McLamb) is the County recorder for Dragonflies in Shropshire and Odonata Tsar for the Shropshire Ecological Data Network.
