About the book.

Excellent, comprehensive field guides to our dragonflies and damselflies already exist. But to a complete beginner, these can be overwhelming. That's where this book can help.
A Beginner's Guide to Dragonflies and Damselflies is a field guide for beginners and also provides an introduction to these insects, to how they live and how to watch them. The field guide includes information on 47 species but its main focus is 24 species that can be easy to encounter. Most of the dragonflies and damselflies that you see will be among these 24. The species are arranged more or less in scientific order in beginner-friendly groups. There is a double-page spread for each focus species, which includes information on key features, habitat, distribution, flight period, confusion species, and ID tips as well as interesting factfile snippets.
This book helps you take your first steps with the dragonflies and damselflies of Britain and Ireland and enables you to confidently identify most of the species that you initially encounter.

Due for publication in November 2019 - please note that payment will be taken when your order is placed.
