Bateswood

A 61 acre grassland site with several pools and fish-free scrapes; perfect for dragonfly larvae. The water is shallow and warms quickly and there is plenty of aquatic vegetation to allow the dragonflies to emerge. Species include common and black darter, four-spotted chaser and emperor dragonflies, as well as common blue, azure, emerald and blue-tailed damselflies.
