Brownsea Island in Dorset celebrates rare birthBreaking News
Researchers believe Eric Warwick is the first baby born on Brownsea Island in Poole Harbour since 1927.
Anita and Trevor Warwick, the parents of the baby who was born in April, already have a daughter, Edith.
The National Trust searched the archive and initially thought it was the first birth on the island since 1905 but found a baptism record for a boy in 1927.
Brownsea Island is regarded as the home of the Scout Association after Robert Baden-Powell held the movement's first ever camp in 1907.
It is also famous for its population of red squirrels, more than 150 different types of birds and Sika Deer.
