Call for photographs of Dragonflies and Damselflies

Michael Driessen is currently developing a field guide to Tasmanian dragonflies and damselflies.

If you have photos you think may help illustrate it, please forward them to michael.driessen@dpipwe.tas.gov.au. Pictures can be of adults, larvae, metamorphosis or behaviour. If used, you will be contacted and acknowledged in the guide.

 Informal excursions

In recent times some members of Field Naturalists have been conducting some informal excursions, often mid-week. Don Hird is interested in visiting the Tom Gibson Nature Reserve in the Northern Midlands, not far from the Midland Highway near Epping Forest. The reserve was partly set up as a bettong reserve as they are not adequately represented in the existing reserve system and are now endemic to Tasmania. Don would like anyone interested in joining him to contact him via email. At this stage there is no scheduled date and this can be organised to be convenient for everyone interested. Don’s email is donh1952@gmail.com .
