Harbour Update – posted 01/04/23

Here we are, April 1st, normally a date we prime our selves for as it’s often female Osprey, CJ7’s normal return date. However, before April even started we’ve had nest dramas, love triangles and sky battles! Will April deliver any more surprises? It seems the nest situation has sorted it’s self out now with CJ7 present on and off the nest all day, with fish deliveries, nest building and mating attempts carried out. There’s been no sign of the un-ringed Osprey around the nest site, although we believe she was seen at Morden Bog this afternoon eating a fish. At Lytchett Fields a Spotted Redshank was feeding, 2 Willow Warbler were in the PCW Drain in Poole and 2 White-tailed Eagle were touring the harbour and south Purbeck’s being seen over Wareham, Wareham Channel, Corfe and Sandford. There were still 12 Pintail in Middlebere and c400 Black-tailed Godwit with 1 Greenshank.
