Due to the Coronavirus outbreak and the disruption caused by events in 2020 I am extending the postponement of field trips during 2021
It's all very well planning your next adventure via google or OS maps but wouldn't you like to save time searching and get down to experiencing photographing without the time-consuming leg-work?
Since 2014 I've offered guided tours for individuals and groups eager to learn more about these majestic insects, locate a particular species or experience the best locations. Each tour lasts approx 4 hours and includes identification techniques, habitat preferences, behaviour patterns and tips on field craft allowing you to photograph them at their best.
I can offer a choice of suitable locations within the New Forest, East Dorset or North Hampshire from ponds, streams and lowland heath offering a broad spectrum of our native species from Spring to late Summer.
Prices start at £40 per person for weekdays with a £10 supplement for weekends. Additional parties are charged at £15 per person with a maximum of four. There is an additional £10 supplement for North Hampshire to cover fuel expenses.
The tour usually lasts 4 hours and are available between the hours of 10.00am and 4.00pm (11.00am to 3.00pm for North Hampshire)
Participants should allow a level of flexibility regarding dates to allow for the right weather conditions - dragonflies do not fly on wet or overcast days.
A basic level of fitness is required to cope with the terrain which usually has uneven and\or wet & muddy ground. Wellington Boots are essential as there may be stream crossings and boggy conditions.
