Arne’s best kept secret – the majestic White Hart!

Arne is a nature reserve on the edge of Poole harbour in Dorset, which boasts a biodiverse mix of heath, mudflats and ancient oak woodland. This makes it a fantastic location for exploring, spotting wildlife and whiling away the time; and if you’re lucky enough, you may just stumble upon a creature of legend...

A skull I found in the woods!

I was out clearing scrub in the woods the other day, when I stumbled upon skull! It was found amongst the decaying leaf litter, along with some other bones too. This tells us it must have died there or at least very nearby - so we're dealing with a woodland creature... Could you guess what animal it's from?
