Yep I was in Dorset again, and the weather wasn't great. In fact it gave me a chest infection. While fossil hunting at Kimmeridge we didn't let the weather put us off. We were drencehed. We did however find some amazing fossils, pictures soon.
We also visited a place called Arne, an RSPB center. Here there is a large number of sika deer, a species I have never seen. I was worried that we would not see any. I need not have worried, they where everywhere. One was even on the path and walked right up to me. Here I saw many new species, Sika deer, wood ants, a green woodpecker and a special bird the Dartford warbler, incredibly rare.

We also went to Radipole lake, another RSPB centre, famous for bearded tits. Incorrectly named as they only have a moustache and what I didn't know they are the only member in Europe of the babbler family. We didn't see any but did see a marsh Harrier.

We also fed the foxes in Poole and they came really close. I managed a few good shots. Then the fireworks came and they scarpered.
