Whether you were one of the many eagle-eyed spotters who contributed to the 2019 survey, or you are just interested in the region’s wildlife, then this talk is for you. Durham Wildlife Trust Trustee and survey organiser, Michael Coates, will present the findings of the 387 surveys and over 3000 dragonfly sightings.

The talk will also include

• Identification tips

• Photos of strange behaviour (can you spot that in the photo?)

• Where best to see dragonflies

• The most common species

• The first and last sightings

• The ones we didn’t see but should have

• Plan for 2020 survey

Plus a gallery of some of the 1000+ photos that were submitted.

There will also be plenty of exuvia to examine and prizes for the best photos (various categories) and the most sightings submitted.

This event is likely to be very popular so will run twice. Please book your places ASAP and inform us if you are unable to attend, as there might be a waiting list.

Accessibility: this event will be held in our Attenborough Room which is located on the first floor of the visitor centre, accessed via a staircase or chairlift. If you have any queries about accessibility please get in touch.

Please note that the talk on Saturday 1st February will be downstairs.
