BOC Jurassic Coast seabird cruise

BOC Jurassic Coast seabird cruise, Saturday June 9th, 2012

25 places have been reserved on the RSPB Birdboat cruise, and there are still some places available.Tickets cost only £12 for RSPB members (£13 non-members).

You will need to make your own arrangements to get to Poole, but I will be happy to help with linking up car-sharing requests and offers.

Since this is an evening event, which finishes after sunset, you might wish to book overnight accommodation, so early decisions will be vital for that reason too. You could make your own plans for a full weekend in order to visit the Dorset Wildlife Trust reserve at Brownsea Island and/or nearby RSPB Arne.

The three-hour trip ranges along the fascinatingly-varied geology of this famous coast. You can expect close views of many birds along the cliffs: on the last trip we saw such as Razorbills, Guillemots, Puffins, Shags, Kittiwakes, Fulmars and Peregrines very well, with Gannets further out to sea. A truly wonderful sight was that of the sun sinking behind the arches and columns of the Old Harry rocks.

If you want to go, please contact Ray Reedman (tel: 0118 9864338) soon if you want to be sure of your place.

N.B. The operators reserve the right to cancel the trip in the case of bad weather.
