British Dragonflies DVD (all regions)

In stock
Each species is the subject of a short film which gives an introduction to the species, shows their breeding behaviour and gives identification tips for males and females.
The Dragonfly DVD starts with an Introduction offering tips on how to use it updated from the Damselflies volume. It continues with a short description of the Dainty Damselfly found breeding again in Britain after the Damselfly DVD had been released. Descriptions of the Dragonflies follow.

A short film on each species is divided into four parts:

an introduction to the species

male identification

female identification

breeding behaviour.

Habitat views are included along with graphics showing distribution and flight seasons. Similar dragonfly species are compared. In addition, all the species in some family groups (eg. Chasers and Skimmers) are compared side by side.

The running time for the Introduction is approximately 6 minutes and the running time for the Dragonfly Species Films is approximately 160 minutes (2 hours 40 minutes). If you need a longer look at a specific view hit the ‘pause’ button. ALL but one of the 26 resident breeding or regular migrant British species are described plus some of the vagrants and one extinct species. Since publishing the DVDs the Vagrant Emperor has become a regular visitor with attempts at breeding, the Southern Migrant Hawker has been breeding around the Thames estuary and seems to be spreading further north and west. Yellow-legged Clubtail, Yellow-spotted Emerald and Large White-faced Darter have been added to the vagrants list.

DVD, SD quality at 4:3 ratio, run time approximately 160 minutes
