Field Trip – Dawn Chorus Martin Down NNR


The proposal is to walk to the rifle butts and wait for whatever we can hear.

When the chorus has finished surprising us we can then follow a path east onto the main body of the reserve and may encounter Turtle Dove but this is speculative.

Wandering back to the car park by about eight a.m. after a sandwich it might be worth crossing the road to Vernditch Chase for whatever species are lurking in the woodland. People are at liberty to leave at any time they wish.

Meet Point: car park on the Salisbury/Blandford road Grid Ref: SU 036 200
