Chartley Moss National Nature Reserve is the largest floating peat bog in Britain, and supports important botanical communities. It is also recognised as an important site for Dragonflies, as its sphagnum pools support breeding populations of the rare White-faced Darter. Join Natural England Reserve Manager Paul Shires, and BDS Conservation Officer Ellie Colver, for a guided tour around this wonderful site, and a chance to encounter this charismatic species.

Cost: £4 per person to be paid on the day. Free to children.

Wear suitable outdoor footwear (wellies would be best as it can be very wet) and clothing. Bring binoculars, ID books, camera if you have them. Contact Eleanor Colver to book a place on one of the walks. Please provide a phone/mobile number and the names of all the people attending.
