Field visit to Conningbrook lakes, Ashford

Recently Club members visited Conningbrook lakes on the edge of Ashford. This area of former quarries and adjacent arable fields are now a 34 hectare country park and series of lakes designated for recreation, sports, fishing and conservation with attached land earmarked for housing. An interesting mix of grassland and wetland species was seen, with dragonflies, demoiselles and damselflies in abundance.
