Identification of Dragonflies and Damselflies

This course is aimed at all those with a desire to learn more about these stunning insects. Open to all levels of ability we aim to introduce you close-up to a good number of the 31 Shropshire species of dragonfly and damselfly so that you will leave confident in your own abilities to identify them and make species records. Classroom sessions on identification, life history, larvae and exuviae will be combined with a number of field visits to a range of aquatic habitats. This will allow you to put your skills into practice and to observe and understand the visual spectacle of these fascinating insects on the wing.

Sue Rees-Evans is the County recorder for Dragonflies in Shropshire and Odonata Tsar for the Shropshire Ecological Data Network.
