The British Dragonfly Society’s database is stored at the UK Biological Records Centre and feeds into the National Biodiversity Network (NBN) Atlas so that the data are available for everyone to use. We use iRecord to receive, manage and check the records submitted. You can contribute to our Recording Scheme by submitting your observations using any of the following methods.

New to recording?  Check out our beginners guide.

iRecord

If you have a large number of records to submit, please enter them onto this spreadsheet file and send it to your County Dragonfly Recorder for import.

Other data entry methods

If iRecord is not suitable for you please contact your Count Dragonfly Recorder to discuss other options.

To alert other visitors to dragonflies you’ve seen without creating a scientific record please use our casual Sighting form instead.

To report an unidentified organism consider putting photographs onto iSpot, where volunteers will offer their wisdom. [Not a BDS site; opens in a new tab.]
