My name is Sue Rees Evans and for 8 years I was the British Dragonfly Society’s Shropshire County Recorder and the Odonata Tsar for the Shropshire Ecological Data Network (SEDN). This simply meant I gathered, collated and verified species records of dragonflies before sending these records on to the British Dragonfly Society and the SEDN.
Whilst in this role I was approached by accomplished naturalist and author Paul Hope who was planning a book on Shropshire dragonflies. We teamed up with the intention of producing a local field guide only to find website technology advancing a pace and enabling us to publish far more information and photographs online than we could ever hope to in a book. To that end we have together produced the text for this website which we really hope you find informative and enjoy.
