Dragonfly enthusiasts of all levels of ability are welcome to come along and learn more about these stunning insects. The day will start with a classroom workshop introducing this group of insects and focusing on their identification. We will then head to the pools and hopefully introduce you close-up to a good number of the local species. Weather permitting there will be ample chance to allow you to put your identification skills into practice and to observe and understand the visual spectacle of these fascinating insects on the wing.
