ERCCIS Dragonflies Workshop, Cornwall

Tuesday, 8 August 2023
10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Find out how to tell your emperors from your hawkers and your skimmers from your darters, plus the opportunity to see some rarities!

This field trip serves not only as an introduction to Dragonflies and Damselflies and their ecology and habitat requirements but as a useful guide to surveying skill and an opportunity to see the BAP species Scarce Blue-tailed Damselfly Ischnura pumilio and Small Red Damselfly Ceriagrion tenellum. The old tin streaming beds of the Red River Valley Local Nature Reserve provide us with a range of habitats to investigate and a wide range of species to recognise and record.

Leader: Steve Jones, previous County Recorder for Dragonflies

We will also be joined by Lauren Kennedy, Conservation Outreach Officer for the British Dragonfly Society.

Location: Red River Valley Local Nature Reserve Full details provided after booking Camborne TR14 0JH
