|Canford Magna is beautifully situated close to Wimborne Minster along the banks of the beautiful River Stour and is a prime spot for the stunning displays of Banded Demoiselles and the perfect location for large populations of White-legged Damselflies. You should also encounter Brown Hawkers.
Cross the footbridge from the school and turn left
or right, following the bank where you should encounter
large numbers of Banded Demoiselle. Check the long
grasses along the bank and the other side of the path
for roosting White-legged Damselflies.
Chasers, Brown Hawkers and other species tend to perch
in the boundary hedges and the undergrowth upstream on
the same side as the school.
