So it’s not surprising our Conservation Director Andy Lester is over the moon about our latest visitor! ‘Once again it’s exciting news for a site that’s recently been labelled as one of the best places to see dragonflies in the UK by BBC Wildlife magazine,’ said Andy. ‘Indeed, the site has appeared in numerous publications over the past few weeks – both local and national – and featured on BBC’s Countryfile programme.’
From 1st-5th September, this five-day programme will run at the St Madoc Centre amid some of Britain’s most beautiful countryside. During your stay there’ll be plenty to do – from bird surveys to exploratory walks led by Steve and Elaine Swinney. Find out more about some of the amazing creatures that live nearby from expert ecologists like Peter Sturgess.
