Welcome to the new Sussex Dragonfly Group website.

Located in one of the warmest parts of the United Kingdom and well placed to receive migrant species, East and West Sussex are good counties for dragonflies and damselflies with a total of 44 species recorded to date. These species, apart from being both attractive and interesting, are good early indicators of environmental change. Consequently, sightings are of considerable value.

The aim of this website is to allow observers to post their Sussex dragonfly and damselfly sightings and to provide both news of forthcoming events and information about the current status of these species within the county. Additionally, a few identification tips are presented.

This site should be used in conjunction with the British Dragonfly Society (BDS) website which will provide further information and you are encouraged to support dragonfly conservation in Britain by becoming a BDS member.
