ODONATA πŸ‘‍πŸ—¨UPDATED 2021

Welcome to my database of Dragonflies & Damselflies. To be fair most of my travels are based on birding but you can't go birding without noticing all the other wonderful wildlife you are likely to encounter during your time out in the field. Below is a record, using my iNaturalist account database of the wonderful Odanata I've encountered since the inception of my blog in 2009.

My latest additions include Northern Damselfy and Common Hawker in Scotland and Long Skimmer which I recording during my latest trip to Spain in September 2021.
