The Dragonfly Challenge!

Following on from the success of the Big Butterfly Count, the British Dragonfly Society are running a challenge this year over the week of July 15th to the 23rd.

The idea being for people to go out and visit ponds, rivers and wetlands to record the dragon and damsel flies seen without an apparent time limit.

There are ID sheets and forms to download on their web-site (click here to link). I will try to go up to the marsh below Hawks Tor (packed with Keeled Skimmers at the moment) and maybe over to Raven's Drinking if there is a fine day but if anyone can suggest a good place to visit (pond below St Clether?) let me know and we could have a pop-up event.
