Cheshire Dragonflies & Damselflies

These pages are intended to provide information about the status of Odonata in the County of Cheshire and also the Wirral.

 
 

The Cheshire Recording Scheme

 

The data presented is based upon records submitted to the Cheshire Odonata recording scheme which was established in its current format by Richard Gabb in 1985. The scheme is based on recording sightings of Odonata with a measure of their breeding status based on observations of breeding behaviour and nymphs or exuviae. Recordings are mapped on a two kilometre square or Tetrad basis.

Due to health issues I have now relinquished the role of Cheshire Dragonfly Recorder and these pages will no longer be actively updated. If you wish to submit records of Cheshire Odonata these will be gladly received by the new recorders:

Chris Meredith and John Roberts
