Your records are essential to the work of the British Dragonfly Society. They provide much of the scientific basis for our knowledge, helping us to find out where and when dragonflies occur. For example, mapping records can reveal changes in species’ ranges. Your records also help us to identify and monitor important sites and to steer conservation priorities.
How to get involved
There is a simple record form and multiple form: If you have noticed a particular dragonfly species and wish to submit a single record, use this form. Even if you have not submitted records before this form is designed to be easy to use and guides you through each step. It gathers all the basic information that constitutes a valid dragonfly record.
