Dragonfly and damselfly guided walk at RSPB Ham Wall

Learn to tell a common darter from a four-spotted chaser, or a large red damselfly from a banded demoiselle.

Join us on a walk around RSPB Ham Wall as we see how many different dragonflies and damselflies we can spot, whilst learning more about their life cycle and behaviours. This is the time when four spotted chaser's often emerge in good numbers on the reserve - see how many we can spot!
