Welcome to our October members.....

Miko 2152

Miko

Miko is a 2 year old Chihuahua from Bournemouth who regularly walks at Boscombe Chine Gardens, Boscombe Beach, St Catherine's Hill, New Forest, Hengistbury Head and by the River Stour

During the spring & summer months we're asked by local Rangers to inform people about where they need to be aware of birds nesting on the grounds on heaths or other specialised habitats - in autumn and winter it's the birds who flock to our Dorset coast who need extra care....

The flocks may be exhausted and hungry after long journeys or simply trying to survive the winter so we can help by keeping our distance and making sure our dogs do too, so they can feed and rest in peace. Find out more about them or do our quiz by clicking here!
