Dragonflies are among the most ancient of living creatures. From fossil records we know that these amazing insects were
flying some 300 million years ago, before even dinosaurs roamed the earth. Odonata (dragonflies) thrive in unpolluted water that supports plenty of submerged and emergent vegetation. These provide egg laying and emergence sites as well as shelter. The Kingcombe Centre, on the river Hooke, with two of its own ponds makes it an ideal location to introduce you to these beautiful insects.
