My name is Paul Winter and I am, from February 2018, the CDR (County Dragonfly Recorder) for VC11 (South Hampshire) on behalf of the BDS (British Dragonfly Society).

These pages are about dragonflies in South Hampshire and around Álora in Málaga province, Andalucía.

I live in Rownhams on the edge of Southampton close to the New Forest. My main interest is dragonflies and I spend as much spare time as I can searching for and watching them. Holidays are spent in Álora with some time spent along the local arroyos and ríos. I also have an interest in gulls and spend (too) many hours looking through the Blashford gull roost during the winter months.

I'm a little bit greyer than in the photo and if you bump into me in the field then the glasses will probably be dark!

I have a blog which has spasmodic (mainly nature) entries and also a facebook page which also has spasmodic (mainly nature) entries. I will try to keep more systematic lists on this site
