Dorset Walks

Friday March 27th
St Aldhelms Head

A very blustery walk on a cold March day, but an excellent start to the weekend after a week at work!

The walk to the chapel was through fields that were largely birdless, apart from a few Skylarks and Meadow Pipits.

Then as we reached the Coastguards Cottages a pair of Roe Deer ran across the field in front of us closely followed by a pair of Red-legged Partridges.

After a quick look in the Chapel we walked out to the Lookout and spotted a few Gannets and Razorbills out in the rough waters of the tidal race. A pair of Ravens soared effortlessly overhead into the wind. How do they do that!

Walking back we saw large numbers of Rooks and a solitary Kestrel
