Depends what you mean by best.
Brownsea Island is a nice place for a day out.
Not quite Dorset, but The New Forest would take some beating, especially at dawn.

Most of Dorset is a reserve without it needing special status, but Powerstock Common's pretty good. Smile

I've just been made a protected species. Wink

You're spoilt for choice here. What are you particularly interested in?

Powerstock is good and also Kingcombe Meadows
But in both places (& others I suspect) you need to protect yourself against deer ticks by wearing long trousers tucked into socks and taking something to lie on for ground level stuff.

A good point Penny! Lyme's disease would not a pleasant souvenir from a photo expedition and is certainly an issue in the New Forest.

Try Arne, the deer are used to people and let you get within 25 feet. dragonflies, butterflies and sand lizards.
