Hampshire

Rolling hills, ancient woodland, clear unpolluted rivers, prehistoric coastland and precious lowland heath. Dorset has long avoided the inevitable progress of modern urbanisation due to its location away from the main road and railroad corridors.

This doesn't mean the county has escaped the urban crawl and subsequent habitat destruction, the east in particular suffering valueable heathland loss with the growth of Bournemouth and Poole, but even these conglomerations can produce the odd jewel.

Luckily west of Poole gets increasingly more rural with the ancient heaths surrounding Wareham. The River Stour ia prime spot for Brown Hawkers, Banded Demoiselles and White-legged Damselflies while in the east the River Avon brings Scarce Chasers and most of the New Forest species.
