Harbour Update – posted 05/07/20

Autumn passage is building really nicely at the moment with now 11 Little Ringed Plover on Lytchett Fields today. The Poole Harbour record is of 12 on several dates at Lytchett Fields last year but being so early in July, there’s plenty of time for more to arrive, as it seems they’ve had a good breeding season. Also on the fields were 1 Spotted Redshank, 1 Greenshank, 3 Green Sandpiper and 1 Peregrine. In Middlebere an Osprey (assumed to be CJ7) with a fish was seen flying over the channel, over Hydes Heath and out towards the Wareham Channel. In the Middlebere Channel it’s self were 11 Curlew, 7 Little Egret, 3 Redshank and 14 Shelduck. At Creekmoor Ponds, it was great to see a Great Crested Grebe was still on eggs as we’re not sure the last time they bred there.
