Oystercatchers also roam the waters, and are rather penguin-like in their colouring, and actually eat more cockles and mussels than they do oysters. The New Forest, with its pasture, woodland and heaths, is particularly noted for breeding raptors, such as, Hobby, and Honey Buzzard, and passerines, such as, Wood Warbler, Dartford Warbler, Redstart and Stonechat.

The former includes species such as Masked Booby Sula dactylatra (2007) and Lesser Spotted Eagle Clanga pomarina (2001) , neither of which has yet made it to the British List, and a probable Sharp-tailed Sandpiper Calidris acuminata misidentified as a Pectoral Sandpiper Calidris melanotos (1969). The county has been fortunate to retain habitats which are increasingly rare in southern Britain - lowland heaths, chalk grasslands, ancient woodlands and unspoilt estuaries. We have an extensive programme of walks throughout the year, plus monthly meetings ( 2nd Wednesday each month) in Lyndhurst Village Hall.Forming part of the South Downs, the park is within the East Hampshire Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Coupled with photographs taken in Hampshire and the excellent field sketches and paintings by Dan Powell, these descriptions bring to life the exhilaration and excitement of finding a rarity. An unrivalled collection of photos is included, complemented by a unique series of paintings and sketches of Hampshire rarities as seen through artist Dan Powell’s eyes.This forest has trees from around the world, making marvellous nesting points for a wide variety of birds. Hampshire has a rich ornithological history which can be traced back to the late 18th century when Gilbert White wrote The Natural History of Selborne. These factors combine to ensure that the diversity of birds breeding, wintering and migrating through the county is high. The southern boundary is the coastline of the English Channel and the Solent, facing the Isle of Wight.

Each species account begins with a brief status summary giving the number of county records in the modern (post-1950) era. Besides the wealth of information on all these rare birds, the majority are of course illustrated with a huge array of generally excellent photographs (and the occasional ‘record’ shot! These Proceedings incorporate scientific papers dealing with four different topics, covered over the two days of the Solent Science Conference: coastal processes; water quality and chemistry; biodiversity and conservation; and integrative Solent case studies.

This is a circular walk in the New Forest in Hampshire passing through heathland on the outskirts of the forest to the Canadian War Memorial and back again. When applicable, eBird generally defers to bird records committees for records formally considered to be of "uncertain provenance". I grew up in the then village of Hedge End (now an ever expanding town) and spent my younger years birding the woodlands and part of the Hamble Estuary that were known as "The Cricket Camp".Many unpublished accounts of the discovery of rarities are included, as well as several amusing anecdotes. It is one of only two National Trails that can be used not only by walkers but also by cyclists and horse-riders for its entire length This is the complete, official guide for the long-distance walker or the weekend stroller.
