Studland peninsular: a circular walk through the dunes, along the beach and across Godlington Heath to the Agglestone.

We started at the Knoll Beach (NT car park or number 50 bus) on 22nd September 2015 and walked to the Little Sea, across the dunes, along the beach to the ferry and then northwards to Godlington Heath and the Agglestone.  Click on any picture to expand it.

 The Little sea.
Dozens of Common Darters were flying around.
Wood ants marched to and fro across the sandy path.

 Threatening weather.

The ferry from Studland to Sandbanks across the entrance to Poole Harbour.
 Godlington Heath.
 A few miles to the east it was pouring with rain.

 Agglestone rock.

 Bog Asphodel gone to seed.
This is a great walk, full of interesting wildlife: we saw a Roe deer - fleetingly.
And we were lucky to escape the worst of the showers on this chilly, blustery day -- perfect weather: not too hot, not too dry, a typical September day in Dorset in England.
