The glacially sculptured lake is in a beautiful mountainous and oak woodland setting. It is perhaps the premier site for dragonflies in North Wales and home to some rare or local dragonfly species including the Downy Emerald, Small Red Damselfly, Hairy Hawker and Keeled Skimmer.
Parts of the lake are sphagnum bog so wellington boots are essential! Wear suitable field clothing and be prepared for showers. No dogs. Bring lunch and drink.
This meeting is held in collaboration with Llinos Alun from the Snowdonia National Park Authority - www.eryri.llyw.cymru
Meet on the road that skirts the northern shore of the lake around SH63023711 (Post Code LL47 6YS) at 11am.
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.
