Hartland Moor and Middlebere Heath :: SY9585
A Dorset heathland on the Isle of Purbeck. Much of the area is owned by The National Trust and is a National Nature Reserve.
Hides overlook the heathland and Middlebere Lake, part of Poole Harbour. Bird-watching highlights include migrating ospreys in spring and autumn, hen harriers, hobbies, stonechats and meadow pipits, with large flocks of avocets and Brent geese resident throughout the winter.
Rare plants range from marsh gentian and bog orchid to Dorset heath. All six native British reptiles can be found here.
National Trust
A National Trust is an organization dedicated to preserving the cultural or environmental treasures of a particular geographic region. They generally operate as private non-profit organizations, although some receive considerable support from their national government. The first such organization was the National Trust for Places of Historic Interest or Natural Beauty, which is the National Trust of England, Wales and Northern Ireland, formed in 1895 and operating as a charitable organisation.
