Brownsea Island

Interesting
Brownsea Island is not far from the town of Poole. It is fringed by inviting beaches along its south shore and has two nature reserves (north and south) that stretch out on either side of a road. The north reserve is a sanctuary for waterfowl. The south reserve is home to numerous peacocks. Baden-Powell Stone commemorates the first experimental Boy Scout camp held in 1907. From here there is a splendid view across Poole Bay.
