This day is designed to be a recording day; there will be no formal teaching although a tutor will be leading the day and providing identification support. The aim is to identify and record as many species of Odonata (dragon and damselflies) as possible. Consequently it is most suitable for those with some experience of identifying dragon and damselflies previously; for example people who have attended one or both of the BioLinks Learn To Love Dragonflies/Learn To Love Damselfly courses, or who have a similar level of knowledge. It is a great opportunity to practice or refresh your ID skills!

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.
