In addition to the main BDS Recording Scheme we are currently running a number of more specialised recording projects. Also listed below are opportunities to get involved in Odonata monitoring projects organised by other organisations.
Target Species Projects: these projects focus on particular species and are a great way for beginners to get a taste of Dragonfly recording.
Previous Recording Projects: projects that have now ended
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.
