Local wildlife Recorders will illustrate their talks with photos of the wonderful wildlife which lives at the Lake.

Last year Llangorse Lake was recognised by the British Dragonfly Society as the first Dragonfly Hotspot in Wales for its numbers and variety of dragonflies, and as a top place for people to see them. Twenty-one different dragonflies and damselflies live here, and counts in early summer run into thousands. Keith Noble will show their remarkable life in and out of the water, and the fine colours and patterns of the various species.

Andrew King, County Recorder for Butterflies and Birds, will celebrate the coming of Spring. Migrant Curlews pass through, Swallows and Martins arrive and Orange-tip butterflies emerge.  Wildfowl nest around the Lake and warblers chatter in the reeds. The meadows become bright with orchids, Ragged Robin, Birdsfoot Trefoil, and Common Blue butterflies. Then come Devilsbit Scabious and Fleabane with Red Admirals, Peacocks and Painted Ladies.

This free event is provided by Powys Green Connections and British Dragonfly Society as part of the Llangorse Lake Dragonfly Hotspot programme.
