Training Course

Hi all,

In case it's of interest, there is an upcoming training course this year at Parc Slip on Odonata, run by Dr Wendy Harris of Swansea University http://www.welshwildlife.org/events/introduction-odonata-training-course/

Looking forward to testing out my new close-focusing binoculars this summer!
