It is easy to contribute to this project and your help will allow us to continue following the progress of this valuable population. Visit Foulshaw Moss during the White-faced Darter flight season (June - early July) and send us any records you collect of the species on your trip. Record where you see them (with a grid reference) along with the date and the number of individuals you saw. If you see any behaviour, such as mating or egg‐laying, add that to your record to increase its value.The boardwalk on a sunny day offers the best prospects of views of this species. If you visited Foulshaw during 2016 and are still to submit your records of White-faced Darter, visit our 'Submit Records' page ot find out how to now.
