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 £35 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.
