A rare opportunity to visit a wonderful deer park where there are a number of lakes and pools each with a different character. Sixteen species are recorded there and, no doubt, more species are to be found. In particular, two species for which there is suitable habitat are: Hairy Dragonfly and, though the date is a little early, may be Small Red-eyed Damselfly. Also, see the Packington Estate website
