This Saturday Natural England Volunteer Warden, and well known photographer, Stephen Barlow will be leading a group onto the Mosses for a dragonfly hunt.

The Marches Mosses are famous for their unique landscape and the amazing creatures that live on them so this event will be a must for both wildlife photographers and those who wish to know more about the third largest lowland bog in the UK.

They can learn why it is important as a place to preserve and visit and why it is being restored back to health through the BogLIFE Project.

The Marches Mosses are home to a wide variety of flora and fauna and Stephen will be telling participants more about creatures such as the Common Hawker Dragonfly.

Stephen said: "The Common Hawker is a large dragonfly which is on the wing from the end of June through to October, with any luck this will be one of the species that we will see on Saturday.

"Hawkers are the largest and fastest flying dragonflies, they can catch their insect-prey mid-air and can hover or fly backwards."

An accomplished photographer Stephen will be pleased to pass on hints and tips to people attending the event, he has been photographing wildlife on the Marches Mosses for many years.
