Harbour Update – posted 08/06/17

With the wind swinging round more southerly it gave Poole Bay a chance of hosting some Storm Petrels and seeing as Hengistbury had 15 by mid-morning it made sence to have a check off Branksome chine and sure enough, within a few minuets 2 Storm Petrel past west fairly close into shore. We didn’t stay long so there could have been more out there but 8 Gannet, 5 Sandwich Tern and a Fulmar were also counted. There was a report of a drake Common Scoter in Arne Bay which given the strength and direction of the wind is absolutely possible, even though its early summer. On the Brownsea Lagoon, the Sandwich Terns are now feeding chicks which you can watch LIVE on our Brownsea Lagoon webcam. Also on Brownsea were 3 Spoonbill, 1 Avocet and c40 Black-tailed Godwit.
