Holes Bay: hole in one

Post date: Tuesday, 4 November, 2014 - 15:06

Holes Bay is an important site on the northern side of Poole Harbour and, in winter, supports large populations of wintering wildlfowl and waders. Swans, geese, ducks and waders flock in for the good feeding to be had on the mudflats that are exposed at low tide. In summer there are numerous flowers and insects to be found along the shore line.

A tarmac cycle way/footpath runs from near the large ASDA in Poole (where there is ample parking) around the bay and on in it to Upton Country Park. The downside here is the busy road that runs alongside the path but if you keep your eyes and mind on the birds its not so bad! You can walk one way to Hamworthy and catch the bus (or train) back if the six mile round trip is too much.
