WSRS Field trip to Kingcombe, Dorset

18-21 May 2007

Lower Kingcombe in Dorset was an excellent choice.  The centre is run by a charitable trust        but is part of the Dorset Wildlife Trust’s Meadows Nature Reserve of 430 acres, never having been treated with pesticides or artificial fertilizer.
There proved ample recording opportunity on the reserve, with fox, roe deer, woodpeckers, warblers, wood pigeon, thrushes, bats, owls and much more.

The general consensus was that Kingcombe was an excellent venue worthy of repeating in the future, not least because of the friendly and helpful staff, and excellent fare provided.

A fuller account appears in the Society’s Journal, “Wildlife Sound” in Autumn 2007.
