A step back in time

Northern Wheatear, disused quarry – Langton Matravers

Highlights from a walk along the Jurassic Coast close to Langton Matravers back in September (seems a long time ago).

The many disused quarries are a real magnet for migrating birds with Wheatears finding them especially attractive.

Sitting pretty !

The coastal quarries also contain several colonies of Wall Lizards. With their inquisitive nature they’re always entertaining to watch.

Plenty of quarry faces and cliffs available for the Wall Lizards to do what they do best.

A superb walk that never disappoints.
