Whitley Lake Sandbanks

Whitley Lake, best viewed from Shore Road/Banks Road, is a large and extremely shallow area of Poole Harbour, busy with kite and wind surfers on a high tide it is equally busy with birds on a low tide. Like many places in Poole Harbour, winter is the best time to observe good numbers of birds, when the tide drains away exposing a large, flat sandy seabed which provides excellent feeding grounds for birds such as Bar-tailed Godwit, Sanderling, Oystercatcher and Curlew.
