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.

@SocketedAxes @TullieHouse The Tullie Secret Garden has a juvenile or two "stranded" every year. It's parent will visit it and it will be OK. They are very noisy and the call is very poignant so it will tug at your heart strings!

Finally! While the rest of the UK flowering season is well under way, it's taken until yesterday to see my first Early Purple Orchid of 2021 in #Shetland. Growing in a serpentine fell field, they're always tiny, but share their home with other special plants, like Moss Campion. https://t.co/GYBQp2nHwZ CumbriaBDC photo
