Earlier in the year we continued our campaign of blocking up the old drainage system at the south-western end of Langlands Moss near East Kilbride. The plastic dams we installed have been holding water throughout the summer and common hawker dragonflies have been seen ovipositing into the new pools. And even the new peat dam we installed just last week has been holding impressive amounts of water.
In June we teamed up with the British Dragonfly Society to dam up an a ditch that was adversely affecting important damselfly habitat at Logierait Woods SSSI near Pitlochry. A recent visit has shown that the main dam is holding water well and in time hopefully this will help raise the water level at the pond.
