The Cotswold Water Park Dragonfly Atlas

Azure damselfly Wallace Regelous

The CWP dragonfly atlas - published & available to purchase

Dragonflies and Damselflies of the Cotswold Water Park is now in print!

The Cotswold Water Park Dragonfly Atlas Project was originally conceived in 2008, to coincide with the launch of the National Dragonfly Atlas Project. It aimed to complete, and publish results of, landscape-scale dragonfly surveys conducted over a period of 5 years. These surveys sought to establish a detailed and accurate baseline for the Cotswold Water Park, along with proof of breeding for as many species as possible.

Aided by countless hours of volunteer effort, contributions of some stunning photographs and maps, and significant perseverance from the book’s author Gareth Harris, the Cotswold Water Park Trust has announced that a full colour printed edition of the Atlas is available to purchase online for £12 (plus shipping).
