Post Some River Walks
These pictures were taken on some walks I took along the rivers Stour and Avon. I often visit Ibsley Water Meadows on the River Avon. You can park here and walk along part of the River Avon for a short distance and when the grass is kept long there is usually much to see.

This year I couldn't find the scarce chaser at this site although I visited a couple of times.


I also tried Bicton and did find the scarce chaser but couldn't get near enough to photograph.

Along the stour at Pamphill you can also find the white legged damsefly. I have never seen this species on the Avon. I did find it in a garden in Cranborne last year which means it must occur on the Crane that flows through the village.
