Helps to identify UK's dragonflies and submit your sightings to support their study and conservation
The iRecord Dragonfly app helps you to identify the dragonflies and damselflies and record your sightings to support their study and conservation.
Colourful dragonflies and damselflies zooming about over water is one of the quintessential sights on warm summer days. They can be very numerous in some habitats and play an essential ecological role as predators of flying insects, helping to control pests such as mosquitoes. They are also important indicators of water quality and wetland health.
Within the web app that works without an Internet connection, each of the species has a photo gallery, distribution map, adult flight times, its description and habitat information to give guidance on where they are most likely to be found. It takes only a few clicks to submit a dragonfly sighting and for more keen recorders advanced recording functionality has been added.
