How You Can Help
Star of the Month
The Northern Damselfly Coenagrion hastulatum is restricted to a few sedge fringed lochans in the Highlands of Scotland and found nowhere else in Britain, although it is fairly common in northern Europe. It is under threat in Scotland and effort is needed to preserve our population. Talks on this species will feature at the 1st Scottish Recorders Conference in Perth on 12th April.
