Surrey Broad Pool
Grid Reference SS 50988 90991

I visited Broad Pool for the first time in August 2012 after a tip from a Flickr contact solely for the Moorland Hawker, a species which is less than common in Hampshire.

Broad Pool is a large pond on the mountain road from
Cillibion to Reynoldston on the Gower Peninsula west of Swansea. Besides the main pool there is a smaller, kidney-shaped pond to the north-west and several small satellite ponds across the road to the south-east.

All are worthy of exploration, as are the wooded margins further south.
