Dragonflies, pacific salmon and other news

It's Dragonfly Week until 23rd July - but Highland likes to extend the pleasures of dragonfly watching, and so you can join Jonathan Williet at Pitmaduthy Moss, Easter Ross to look for white-faced darters on Sat 29th July. Find out more here. There's also a dragonfly app, to help you with identification.
