 Walking at Hengistbury Head on Tuesday 2nd April 2024

Nine of us had a lovely walk this afternoon at Hengistbury Head the natural scenic area of headland between Bournemouth and Christchurch. It is an area of outstanding beauty with far reaching views of Christchurch Harbour, Mudeford, the Isle of Wight, Poole Bay and Bournemouth.  Our luck was in and we even managed to miss the rain until the last few minutes.                                           

 As usual there was lots of chatting about a variety of different we were discussing skylarks and stag beetles.  The former we read about and the latter we carefully avoided when walking.


We stopped off at the Visitor Centre where we were lucky enough to watch via a webcam a Tawny Owl nesting and a short interesting film about Hengistbury Head.


Our lovely afternoon was rounded off with coffee/tea and cake at the nearby,  Hiker Cafe where the delicious lemon cake and flapjack were very much enjoyed. Looking forward to our next walk on 16th April.
