A walk around the wetlands of the Cheesewring area with the county recorder for dragonflies Steve Jones. We will be hoping to see Black Darters, Emerald Damselflies & perhaps the nationally scarce Small Red Damselfly amongst the dozen or so species recorded from this area of moorland. We will also be hoping to generate up to date sightings for all dragonfly & damselfly species in the area to contribute to the up & coming new Dragonfly Atlas. Beginners welcome.
