Volunteers needed for White-faced Darter surveys at Black Lake, Cheshire
The rare and endangered White-faced Darter was reintroduced to a specially managed pool in Delemere Forest back in 2013. In 2020 adults were spotted nearby at Black Lake for the first time, a sign the population might be spreading.
The Wildlife Trust is looking for volunteers with dragonfly recording experience to help carry out simple White-faced Darters surveys on Black Lake over the summer.
By participating, volunteers will have to opportunity to study one of Britain’s rarest dragonfly species and the chance to explore the rich natural history Delamere Forest has to offer.
