Artist's Description

A visit to Arne near Wareham in Dorset, and we managed a few hours of sunshine before the rains came,this is a place I love to visit, and the sea of Purple and Blue Heathers was a delight.

Arne Wildlife
A vast expanse of open heathland and old oak woodland, sweeping down to the waters of Poole Harbour, featuring panoramic viewpoints and easy-to-use paths and trails.
Arne is a great place for a hearty family walk at all times of year,!
In summer, the landscape is dominated by swathes of purple heather, home to rare and unusual wildlife, while in winter flocks of waders and wildfowl swirl across the shallow waters of the harbour. Herds of sika deer can be seen all year round

For people new to birdwatching, Arne offers a chance to see the speciality birds found on heathlands like the Dartford warbler (all year) and the nightjar (summer only). The reserve’s location within Poole Harbour will allow you to get to grips with a variety of wading birds and wildfowl (ducks, geese and swans), the best times being during the spring/autumn passage and the winter months. Birds of prey are well represented, with peregrines, ospreys, and marsh and hen harriers seen regularly. A number of themed guided walks are run through the year to look for some of these birds.
