Summary

At a National Nature Reserve in the Norfolk Broads (eastern England), between 1986 and 1998, 1,600 m of new dykes were excavated in the winter months. Seven of these 12 dykes were subsequently colonised by Norfolk hawker Aeshna isosceles dragonflies (a species of conservation concern in the UK).
