A total of 23 species were observed during the fieldtrip. The most interesting were the high numbers of Lestes virens (>120) and the rediscovery of Somatochlora flavomaculata at several fens. The main reason for this fieldtrip was to assess the status of the once rather common Sympetrum depressiusculum in the reserve. We only could find 3 and 4 ind. at two different localities in the reserve. This low number is very alarming since the species disappeared at most sites the last 5 years in Flanders.
