Wildlife Highlights - Dragonfly and Damselflies

Anglesey’s wetlands host an impressive array of dragonflies and damselflies.  Good places to see them include Cors Goch, Cors Erddreiniog and Malltraeth Marsh.  Some of the species you may come across include scarce bluetail damselfly, azure damselfly, common bluetail damselfly and common hawker dragonfly.  Dragonflies are very effective predators of smaller aerial insects, often ambushing them mid-flight.
