Cumbria Dragonfly Atlas

Interactive map shows:

  • Distribution of dragonfly records represented by tetrad (2km x 2km) grids. Each tetrad provides information on how many species and number of records recorded in that location.
  • A ‘Heatmap’ that shows where recording activity has taken place, and SSSI sites. Both layers can be switched on/off as required.
  • The map provides a  tool for searching  species recorded in Cumbria using dragonfly common names.
  • Species photos, location information, number of records and mapping period (status) can be browsed by clicking on species pop-up markers.
  • You can add your comment in the comment box and save/print this map using the ‘Print this page’  button.
  • To zoom the map use +/-  at the bottom right corner or press Ctrl  + use your mouse scroll.
  • You can reset the map at anytime by using the ‘Reset map’ button.

So we can confirm we have an EGG!!!👏
It was laid yesterday day afternoon when we noticed the female was sitting tight. In the evening the male brought in a fish and the pair changed over! Two more should be laid in the next few days. https://t.co/3GHTGbuyYu
