Brownsea Island.

Red Squirrel Brownsea Island. © National Trust/Gridley Haack.
A peaceful island of woodland and heath with wide variety of wildlife. Brownsea Island is dramatically located in Poole harbour, offering spectacular views across to Studland, Old Harry Rocks and the Purbeck Hills. It offers a peaceful, natural setting undisturbed by traffic -- ideal for walks, picnics and for families to explore.

See details of National Trust 'Red squirrel walks'.

Important natural habitats include pinewoods, which are home to rare red squirrels, heath, shoreline and lagoon, where many overwintering and breeding birds collect. In the past the island has been the site of a Victorian pottery, a brick works, an Edwardian country estate, a daffodil farm and, in the Second World War, acted as a decoy to protect Poole. The Scout and Guide movements began here with Baden Powell's first experimental camp in 1907.

Highlights: Red squirrels, Sika deer, little egrets, avocets, Black-tailed godwits, water rails, water voles and many many more.

Location: In Poole harbour. Accessible by half-hourly boat service (not National Trust) from Poole Quay (tel. 01202 631828 or 01929 462383) and Sandbanks (tel. 01929 462383). There is also service from Bournemouth and Swanage (tel. 01202 558550).
