Hatchet Pond is a popular tourist and picnicking spot in
the New Forest,
but by far the best spot for dragonfly enthusiast is the smaller pond at
Hatchet Moor car park.
This is a prime site surrounded heather and Gorse and is one
of the best places in the forest to observe Downy Emeralds and Black-tailed
Skimmers. The heath to the west contains many feeder channels and boggy
areas and is well worth exploring.
