A windy but sunny guided walk took place last week with the Chesil Beach and Fleet Nature Reserve Warden and Assistant Warden.
The group enjoyed lots of sights and sounds of mid-summer, including the ever vocal Skylark, performing territorial song flights and views of Little Egrets, Cormorants, Sandwich Terns plus many more.
The group stumbled across a Small Egger larval web (see fig 2 & 3) with very active caterpillars, and a Bordered Tortoise Beetle was sighted on some rope (fig 4). Also, located under the Cornbrash, there were plenty of Sandhoppers and Sea Slaters (fig 5) to be seen. Another guided walk will be taking place on 17th September this year at 10.30am – 12.00pm.
Adults £3 and children £2 meeting at the Abbotsbury Swannery car park.
