NatureScot Commissioned Report 708: Site Condition Monitoring for northern damselfly at Logierait Mires SSSI
From the numbers of larvae found, Logierait curling pond is one of the best sites for the northern damselfly in Scotland and likely to be a source of adult dispersal. The area amongst pine woods on the Eastertyre ridge is an important subsidiary site; it is in good condition and holds a strong population of northern damselflies. However it is infilling as part of natural vegetation succession and should be monitored. Lochan Buidhe, the original site for the northern damselfly, no longer has the species because the habitat has become unsuitable. Work should be done to create more open water to restore the site.
