Moors Valley

A small reserve set in the Purbeck Hills close to Corfe Castle.

Follow the main track from the lay-by keeping your eyes peeled for perched dragonflies.. The path opens out into a small glade which is rife with insects on a hot day. Search here for feeding or roosting individuals. To the right there is a break in the trees leading to a sheltered pond where you will find most of the action, with plenty of sheltered undergrowth available
