A beginner’s guide to learn more about dragonflies.
Dragonflies (including damselflies) are a fascinating group of insects and the Great Fen is a rewarding place to look for them.
This is a beginner’s guide to learn more about their natural history and ecology, where and when to see them, and how to identify them (perched and in flight), covering all the species currently found in Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire, plus others which may be on the way here!
This workshop also includes a visit to the Great Fen to give you 1-to-1 guidance on identification.
There are several ways to report a Dragonfly sighting:
Report a casual sighting or visit to a site, for the benefit of others who might wish to know what’s flying at the moment. These sightings are not vetted and are not automatically treated as scientific records.
