    Dorset Wildlife TrustWith the arrival of some stormier conditions, a few Portuguese man o’ war have been spotted washed up on Chesil Beach. These fascinating oceanic drifters live on the surface of the sea, dangling long, stinging tentacles below to ensnare their prey. Whilst they closely resemble jellyfish, they are siphonophores and rather than being a single animal they are actually a colony of tiny organisms working together but performing different functions. They also have an extremely painful sting, so DO NOT TOUCH. Have you seen any of these in Dorset this autumn? Please let us know ~ Sarah 📸 Colin Garrett ... See MoreSee Less

    Yes I can confirm they have a super painful sting - still got the scars to prove it. Very beautiful though.

    Always a pleasure to see a privet hawkmoth - although fairly common they are still really beautiful!!!

    Isn’t it beautiful? The one thing I miss here in Mallorca is the woodland scenery. Most of our trees are pine.

    One of our team came across this little sleeping beauty of a dormouse clutching a leaf earlier this week!
