A New Forest stream.

A closer look at and into a New Forest stream.

A nature walk along a small stream in the New Forest with a closer look and some of the water life in and around the waterway.

Speedwell (Veronica persica)

Lots of Tadpoles in the stream today.

Film of Dragonfly larva (+ some small fish). The larvae will climb out of the water for the last part of its life cycle and then it will split down its back and a Dragonfly will emerge.

Water crowfoot, (Ranunculus aquatilis).


Water skimmers or striders are small insects that are adapted for life on top of still water, using surface tension to their advantage so they can “walk on water.”
