July 15th to 23rd is The British Dragonfly Challenge week. If you are out fishing during that period why not take part in the challenge. There is full information on The British Dragonfly Society website. Basically you will be asked to record your location and the types and numbers of dragonfly that you see. What better way to spend the time between your Barbel or Carp bites!
The British Dragonfly Society have stated that:
The world of dragonflies is changing fast. As vital indicators of the health of our freshwaters, this has implications for the natural world as a whole. We must know more about dragonflies if we are to protect them and understand what they are indicating about the state of other wildlife. That is why we are challenging you to take action and join in with The Dragonfly Challenge!
