Pop-Up Event: Studland, Thursday 17th December

We're pleased to be running another pop-up event at Studland this Thursday 17th December, from 10am-1pm.

We will have two members of the team based at two different points: Shell Bay and Jerry’s Point. We will be stationed from 9am-12noon (just before the rain is due to hit!) and will be happy to guide you through identifying the local birdlife. Recently, the Studland peninsula has been the go-to location for seeing winter visitors such as Great Northern Diver, Scaup, Black-necked Grebe and Common Scoter. Our team will be on hand to help you spot them and will be wearing our Birds of Poole Harbour coats so we’re easy to find. Unfortunately, we are currently unable to share our optics at public events to limit risk of spreading Covid-19. Therefore, if you have your own binoculars and scopes, please bring them along, they will be really useful!
Access to Shell Bay is simple, with our team located on the sand dunes at the end of the boardwalk from the National Trust Shell Bay car park. Access to Jerry’s Point is not far away. Use the access gate off Ferry Road, and walk along the track to meet us at the point overlooking Brand’s Bay and Bramble Bush Bay. Please bear in mind that the recent weather means that the path to the point may be flooded, which means that wellies are advisable! You can use this point on Google Maps to locate the access gate. You can also use this What Three Words location for Jerry’s Point:
