Harbour Update – posted 01/10/22

Despite it being the weekend, very few reports came in today other than a juvenile Osprey was in Middlebere and a White-tailed Eagle was seen in the Wareham Channel. Another Osprey (an adult) was in Brands Bay and there were 72 Spoonbill on the Brownsea Lagoon with at least 1 Curlew Sandpiper and 1 Spotted Redshank. Holes Bay saw a really decent sized Ringed Plover flock with 42 present as well as 17 Knot and 8 Grey Plover, three species that have traditionally been scarce in Holes Bay. From Middlebere there were 2 Marsh Harrier, 1 Peregrine, 3 Spoonbill and c100 Avocet. Strangest find of the day was a Dartford Warbler that got trapped in WHSmiths in Poole, but then safely caught and released.
