Doings in Dorset

Dorset only came out and declared itself Purple three years ago, when a small population was discovered in Cranborne Chase, close to the Wiltshire border.  Despite much effort by BC Dorset members, only two sightings were made in the Dorset part of the Chase this year. 

This further backs up the overal picture of a very patchy season, with reasonable or even quite good numbers in a few districts but low or very low numbers elsewhere, with all the smaller populations having particularly poor seasons. 

A proper summary of the season will appear on this blog when more information comes in - feel free to wing stuff in, purely to be shared on this blog.
