About this book

Herefordshire, as one of the most picturesque and unspoilt counties in lowland Britain is rich in wildlife. With magical rivers like the Wye and Lugg running through the heart of it and with an abundance of ponds and lakes it is a haven for dragonflies, and yet until 20 years ago it was largely unrecorded.

This book is the product of 20 years of recording in which Peter Garner gives an intimate and personal account of Herefordshire's 27 species of which all but 3 have been proven or are likely to be breeding.

Several records are of special note because Herefordshire is on the edge of their range: this applies to the Scarce Blue-tailed Damselfly, Red-eyed Damselfly, Downy Emerald, Brown Hawker, Migrant Hawker, Golden-ringed, Black-tailed Skimmer, Ruddy and Black Darters.
