Club-tailed Dragonfly  - Brian Walker

Club-tailed Dragonfly Gomphus vulgatissimus is a medium sized dragonfly with a restricted distribution along rivers in the southern part of England and Wales. We have launched Clubtail Count this year, a citizen science survey aimed at gaining a better understanding of the distribution of this vulnerable species. We are keen to receive records of this species and there is still time to sign up to survey a section of river.
