Appear to be in serious decline. For information about what you can do to help, both by providing habitats and contributing to a national survey, go to:

I'll take a look to see what we can do for them. They're such a wonderful site to see flying around on an early summer's eve. Not seen any this year but it's about the right time to start.

Just checked out the site and it's interesting to see that logs left for wildlife can have one end buried up to two foot in the soil. I tend to shred a lot of large prunings and pile them up at the end of the garden to rot. This may also be a good habitat for the larvae so I'll keep an eye out for them.
