Harbour Update – posted 02/03/16

It was noted today that the first Osprey was recorded in the UK with a bird seen up in Argyl around midday. Although still relatively early, Osprey are another species that will be passing through right throughout March and into April. However, spring passage is much quicker and if fine weather prevails then birds will just pass through/over and go straight to their breeding grounds, with birds often only getting delayed and held up in Poole Harbour by bad weather, or….if not paired up yet and possibly looking to scope out a new territory. We’re keeping our eyes peeled.

Sightings today only produced 2 Merlin, one over Slepe Heath and another at Upton CP with a Peregrine. A Great Northern Diver was off Poole Quay with a Guillemot and the Spoonbills were again in Middlebere. A Sandwich Tern was off Baiter, Firecrests were in the Arne car park and up to 7 Chiffchaff were at the PC World drain.
