Harbour Update – posted 05/07/22

It was great to see that the Black Redstart family were still active this evening in a small private garden, Poole Quay. Although having moved slightly from the other day, the male was busy still feeding all three newly fledged juveniles. There were more signs of autumn passage with the seasons first Ruff logged at Lytchett Fields along with 2 Little Ringed Plover and 4 Green Sandpiper. Despite having to postpone a run of Puffin cruises recently due to strong wind, tonights rescheduled trip didn’t disappoint with good views of all 4 last remaining Puffin out on the water, along with passing Gannet, plenty of Guillemot, a couple of Razorbill and a 1 lone Fulmar with the added excitement of a Peregrine chase over the tern islands on Brownsea before we even left the harbour. Plenty of Mediterranean Gull were also loafing out on the water in Poole Bay.
