About this product

The DVD starts with a 6-minute introduction offering tips on how to use it and how it was updated from the Damselflies volume. It continues with a short description of the Dainty Damselfly found breeding again in Britain after the Damselfly DVD had been released, followed by descriptions of the dragonflies.

Each species is the subject of a short film which gives an introduction to the species, shows their breeding behaviour and gives identification tips for males and females. Habitat views are included along with graphics showing distribution and flight seasons. Similar dragonfly species are compared, in addition, all the species in some family groups (eg. Chasers and Skimmers) are compared side by side.

All 25 of the breeding and migrant British species are described plus some of the vagrants. Together with the Damselflies DVD, all the breeding and migrant dragonfly and damselfly species are covered, along with the more frequent vagrants and some potential visitors.
