Harbour Update – posted 02/06/23

There’s certainly cause to celebrate today, as the third (and final!) Osprey egg hatched in the early hours of the morning. We’ve been treated to views of the three chicks being fed on the webcam through the day, and we are reassured that the youngest chick has been getting plenty of food, despite being a little smaller than its siblings. 022 has been hunting often through the day, and may well have been the Osprey that was reported over Lytchett Bay this morning, along with 1 Red Kite and 1 Marsh Harrier. The Little Gull was present on French’s Pool again this morning, as well as 4 Ringed Plover and 1 winter-plumaged Dunlin. On Brownsea Lagoon, the first Common Tern chicks are out, and there were 4 Avocet, 2 Ringed Plover and 2 Dark-bellied Brent Geese also counted.
