Field Trip – Winterbourne Down RSPB site
We will be principally be looking for Stone Curlew – hopefully nesting on site.
This RSPB site on the Hants/Wilts border has limited parking but no toilets and the accessible parts of the site are not extensive so it doesn’t really merit an all-day schedule.

From the A303, follow directions to Newton Tony. Drive through the village and turn right at the Allington sign into Station Hill. Reserve car park on right at brow of hill. From Salisbury, take the A338 north to Allington. Turn right at the Newton Tony sign. Follow the road through Allington and along the single track road towards Newton Tony. The car park is on your left at the top of the hill.
There is a good pub in the village of Newton Tony.
