New Dragonfly Group Launched In Dorset

Banded demoiselle - Nigel Brooks

A newly formed Dorset group is celebrating one of the world's most beautiful and prehistoric insects.

Dorset Dragonflies have launched a brand new website, and are encouraging us to report any sightings.

Dorset is especially good for the black darter and small red damselfly, which thrive on the county's rare heathland habitats.

Andrew Brown, Dorset Dragonflies co-ordinator said: "When I became the dragonfly recorder for Dorset I made it an aim to encourage more people to get involved in recording or just looking at dragonflies, so I started to form a local group. But the group and new website are not just for specialists, I want as many people as possible to get involved, to get out in the countryside, enjoy our events and courses, and really start looking at the dragonflies they find!"
