Harbour Update – posted 07/06/16

Another quiet early summer day with breeding birds being the only birds of note. Many birds are now fledging young with Dartford Warbler, Stonechat, Chiffchaff, Great Spotted Woodpeckers, Nuthatch, Meadow Pipit and most tit species all fledging young in recent days. Common and Sandwich Terns are using the bays in the north of the harbour to feed with Lytchett and Holes Bay seeing both species. Around Poole Town center young Herring Gull chicks are beginning to hatch up on the roofs. And if you haven’t looked already, our Poole Harbour Sandwich Tern colony can be watched live via our Brownsea webcam. The chicks have just recently started hatching so you’ll be able to watch all the comings and goings of these charismatic sea birds.
