The beginning of a journey into the Nature of Dorset!
This my personal guide to the nature of Dorset; it is my hobby, not my livelihood! Here I try to give you as much information as I can about the best places to find animals and plants in Dorset and help you identify what you might have seen or to find what you are looking for. I also try to further my knowledge by featuring a place or a species each day and I hope you can learn something from these Nature Notes too.
This website uses a 'top down' approach with a graphical interface. You should be able to start from this page, choose where you want to go, click or tap the image and you will be presented with a further choice of options. Keep going until you find what you are looking for. Alternatively you can use the site search facility or the Table of Contents at the bottom of the page.
I hope you find what you are looking for and enjoy the nature of Dorset and the Nature of Dorset website.
