Kingston University Biodiversity Action Group

04-07-2017: Biodiversity training and survey events in July - Dragonflies and Butterflies.

We need your help to undertake surveys of our dragonfly and butterfly species around Kingston this summer.

To help get surveyors up to speed, a free Dragonfly identification workshop for Kingston and Hogsmill  is being provided by the London Wildlife Trust (LWT) as part of their Water for Wildlife project.

In return for the free training, we are asking people to  to commit to monthly surveys. These often take between 11;00 and 15:00 and take place across weekends and workdays.

There are only 5 spaces left on the course. If you are interested in taking part please email LWT directly on for more information and to book your place (event details on LWT website).


As usual, Kingston University are taking part in the national 2017 Big Butterfly Count run by Butterfly Conservation.

We are looking for surveyors to undertake a 25 minute survey at each of our sites this year - 15 mins for the site survey and 10 mins to scan and email results back to me :)

The survey period runs from the 14th of July to the 6th of August.

If you can help, please email to sign up for one of our sites and for more information.
