Brown Hawker

Welches Meadow LNR
Radford Road, Leamington Spa
OS Grid Ref: SP 325 657

Brown Hawker – Aeshna grandis

A preview from an interpretation board to be installed on the reserve a little later this year.

The Brown Hawker flies between June and September. It hunts away from the water usually along woodland rides, so you should also explore the adjacent Leam Valley reserve on the other side of the river. Well worth tracking down, it’s flight is faster than any other and it flies backwards too.
