They’ve found that dragonflies are using diseased trees as nurseries on the 11-acre site by the Essex-Suffolk border.

As a result, A Rocha UK have decided not to chop the fungus-ridden wood, and let their residents flourish.

Celebrations kicked off with a special service at Canterbury Cathedral on 4th February.
