Harbour Update – posted 01/06/23

There was some great coverage on Springwatch this evening with female White-tailed Eagle seen hunting a couple of gull chicks on the gull islands. There was also a new Osprey in the harbour today, with one seen in the Wareham Channel just after 022 had caught a fish. Out on the mud in the Wareham Channel were 50 Dunlin and 10 Ringed Plover. At Lytchett Fields a Little Gull was on Frenches Pools, the drake Garganey was on the Swineham scrapes. There was more good news from Poole Town Centre in that there are now 3 Peregrine chicks on show on the Barclays building with the whole family of 5 on view this morning. Finally, the week looks like it may finish just as it started with a new Osprey chick in the nest, as tonight the final egg started hatching and all being well, should be out by tomorrow morning/afternoon.
