Thursley Common
Thundry Meadows is a small reserve situated on the banks of the River Wey near Elstead. Expect to find most of the same species as Thursley, but with larger displays of Banded Demoiselles. I've only visited once so far but first impressions are of a peaceful riverside meadow to spend a summer afternoon watching dragonflies. Pub's not far away either! There is space for one or two cars here.
