Hatfield Forest Wildlife Spotter Sheets

Our learning officer Tina has created three special Spotter sheets, to help you identify the exciting wild flowers, butterflies and moths and dragon flies you might see in the Forest. We cannot guarantee you'll see them all, but it's well worth a go. Why not print a copy before you come, to bring with you?

What's your favourite butterfly - can you spot it in the Forest?

Can you find a dragonfly - they're amazing insects, fortunately much reduced in size over their prehistoric ancestors
