Become a Dragon Hunter!

Dragon Hunter Challenge



From July the clock starts on the 2018 Dragon Hunter Challenge..

The British Dragonfly Society are looking for brave adventurers to help track down 6 species of Dragonfly!

Dragon hunters will have 1 month to explore their local wetlands, rivers and ponds, and try and find as many species as possible. By signing up to the Challenge you'll take part in a journey of discovery, delving into the fascinating world of Dragonflies!  Not only will you master identifying some of the most ferocious and beautiful insects in the UK, you'll learn all about their enchanting life cycle and behavior, and how to help protect them. This is a great summer activity for all ages!


The species are: Large Red Damselfly, Blue-tailed Damselfly, Common Darter, Southern Hawker, Four-spotted Chaser, and Golden-ringed Dragonfly
