Yesterday I completed one of my personal moments for 2012, which was to visit an island in the UK I have never visited before.

The photos in my blog today show that we visited Brownsea Island off the coast of Poole, which is not only famous for the first camp site of the Scout movement, but also for one of the few places in southern England where indigenous red squirrels survive.

Brownsea Castle. Another castle built for Henry VIII!

Brownsea Island is actually sited in Poole Harbour, which is the second largest natural harbour in the world. The first is Sydney in Australia.

In the middle of this picture, if you squint, is the very rare Red Squirrel.
