Britain's dragonflies are on the move

The survival of some species is in doubt mainly because they have been ousted from their traditional haunts by human activity.

The British Dragonfly Society (BDS) says 36 per cent of the 39 dragonfly species are in decline.

And three species - Dainty damselfly, Norfolk damselfly and Orange spotted emerald - have disappeared altogether in the past 50 years.

The BDS is looking for volunteers to help record dragonfly activity in their own area and says it will provide full training and instruction.

The data collected will be used to make conservation decisions and to monitor endangered species and to help them recover. Records of breeding activity are of particular importance for identifying key sites.

Most interesting, thanks for that. We get loads here by the lake every year, the kingfisher (I think) seems to eat some but often see darters and the very big ones by the waters edge sitting on the reeds.
