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.

Young mudshrimps Corophium are growing & moulting right now; a friend once described the piles of cast exoskeletons as 'like snow-drifts' along the shore. Not quite such dramatic nos. here but I was thrilled to find them - the long antennae are clearly seen https://t.co/Fmtf33Duf9 CumbriaBDC photo
