Walk and talk – Dragons and damsels at RSPB Newport Wetlands
Dragonfly Week (1st to 9th July) is an annual celebration of dragonflies and damselflies, some of our largest and most colourful insects.
The Living Levels team has joined forces with Gwent Wildlife Trust and the RSPB to put on a variety of different events throughout the week to celebrate these amazing creatures. many of which are found right here on the Gwent Levels!
Join Kevin Dupé from Natural Resources Wales and our very own Chris Harris, (who just so happens to be the County Dragonfly Recorder for Herefordshire) to learn more about these fascinating creatures and how to identify them. Followed by a short walk around the RSPB Newport Wetlands reserve to try and spot them for yourself!
Booking is essential – please book your place via our Eventbrite page.
*Parking at RSPB Newport Wetlands cost £4 for non RSPB members.
