Club-Tailed Dragonfly (Gomphus Vulgatissimus) The club-tailed dragonfly occurs on the stretch of the River Dee between Shocklach and Aldford;and is the only known site for the species in Cheshire (discovered in 1985). This dragonfly is described as nationally scarce and populations are known to exist on the rivers Severn, Wye and Thames.
Broad-Leaved Ragwort (Senecio Fluviatilis) The Broad-leaved Ragwort is a tall perennial herb, naturalised by lowland streams and rivers. It was introduced before 1600 and originally grown for medicinal use. The somewhat clustered distribution of records suggest independent spread from several different sites; it is now grown in gardens, so many recent records are probably garden escapes. It has persisted in many places, especially in the north e.g. by the River Dee at Holt. This species has a Eurosiberian Temperate distribution; it is naturalised in N.W. Europe beyond its native range.
