This year our group’s coach trip to Weymouth proved to be a great day out. At the Dorset Wildlife Trust reserve at Lorton Meadows we were treated to amazing views over the bay and were shown the work being undertaken there to preserve the habitat. After a picnic lunch this was follwed by a visit to the RSPB site at Radipole Lake where we we able to wander around at leisure and take in the sights and sounds of the many bird species that take advantage of this special reserve - including a solitary male hooder merganser which has somehow found its way there.
