Last Dragonfly Walk of the Year at Parc Slip

Held the last Dragonfly Walk for the public of the year at Parc Slip this afternoon. We were very lucky with the weather- a dismal start to the day but the sun has been shining all afternoon!

A good group of 7 enthusiastic people wanting to learn more about odonata came along and we managed to spot emerald damselflies, lots of common darters, a female common hawker and male and female southern hawkers, despite the wind. Already looking forward to starting these walks up again next year.

Usually in the week, but could look into running a few on the weekends next year. They are all advertised online here http://www.welshwildlife.org/visitor-centres/parc-slip-visitor-centre/pswtvc-events/ Will be more held again from June onwards next year now. Hope to see you on some then!
