Dragonflies (Odonata) are large, spectacular insects with fascinating life styles. Over 50 species are known from Britain and Ireland. On this course we will focus on how to identify the species you are most likely to come across when you visit wetland habitats across Britain. There will be classroom lectures and practicals, and field work sessions in which you will be shown the basic skills and field craft necessary to identify these insects in life. There will also be an opportunity to identify dragonfly photos you have taken. For the field work session please bring suitable outdoor clothing and close-focussing binoculars if you have them. Course fee includes FSC fold out chart: Guide to Dragonflies and Damselflies.
