This autumn, the BDS has been a partner in a trial peatland restoration project in Glen Affric, the Scottish Highlands. It is hoped that positive results from this project will encourage others to carry out similar restoration on some of our most important, and threatened, habitats.
Published last week in the peer reviewed journal PeerJ, a study by Powney et al has revealed fascinating information on dragonfly winners and losers in response to environmental factors. This work was based on analysis of the Dragonfly Recording Network data.
We are delighted to announce that Genevieve Dalley has been appointed to the Conservation Officer post, succeeding Claire Install.
Important work has been carried out to restore and create new habitat for the endangered Southern Damselfly in the Preseli SAC. This work has been carried out by the BDS in partnership with Pembrokeshire Biodiversity Partnership, Natural Resources Wales and Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority.
