Bedfordshire Dragonflies

Welcome to makeham.org, home of Bedfordshire Odonata

Featuring photographs and information about the Dragonflies and Damselflies that can be seen in and around my home county of Bedfordshire.

Scarce Chaser - Libellula fulva. River Great Ouse, Roxton.

This is my website showing my journey into the world of dragonfly appreciation.

I’m fortunate to live a short walk from the River Great Ouse which is a perfect place to see all manner of wildlife. My early interest was birdwatching, and dragonflies and damselflies were something that passed me by until the advent of digital photography when I started taking photos of the natural world around my home.

Knowing nothing about them, I had to learn all I could.

The website is collection of photos, taken around Bedfordshire, with some hopefully useful information about these fascinating creatures

A date for your diary - BDS Annual Meeting and AGM

This is a great way to learn more about the British Dragonfly Society, its work and its people.
