About half the ponds in the Big Pond Dip are reporting finding dragonflies or damselflies.

So the common species are certainly making use of ponds in gardens.

If you want to find out more about the biology of the UKs dragonflies and damselflies a good place to look is here on the website of the British Dragonfly Society.

To find out more about the larval stages living in garden ponds, look here on the Pond Conservation website.

I’m a BDS life member, so once you’ve joined Pond Conservation to protect the habitat, why not join the BDS too!
