Guided Walk at Ancell’s Farm – Dragonflies

Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust are running a guided walk at Ancell’s Farm on Sunday 10 August, which will explore the hidden lives of these fascinating insects. The walk will run from 10.30am – 12pm. For further details, please contact Oliver Hine on 01256 381190. Suggested donation £1.50. Dogs on leads are welcome!

Ancells Farm, near Fleet, is notable for its population of Small Red Damselflies. This is a nationally rare damselfly but it is quite common at Ancells Farm. It has a rather weak, fluttering flight and tends to fly low over vegetation. It can be seen amongst the Bog Myrtle on the fringes of the pond between June and September.
