Sign up to our Facebook Group to find out about and share your latest sightings and news from Yorkshire Dragonflies. From 2015 all sightings will now be posted via Facebook and these pages will no longer be updated. A brief summary of Facebook activity is detailed below.
This appeal might be of interest to group members. In any event keep an eye out for new wetland scrapes at Filey Dams next summer!
For close up viewing of dragonflies and butterflies there is nothing better than the pentax papillio series. Usually £130 Amazon have the 8.5x21 at £69.99 for black friday.
