Harbour Update – posted 10/06/14

Last night we ringed the Swineham Barn Owls of which there are four. You can view them in their box HERE, which now has new night vision and audio. From what we could see all four were likely females so lets hope one gets found again in the future to confirm our thoughts. As we were ringing a Nightjar, 2 Cuckoo and a Hobby flew past. We must thank Lake Views B&B again for their cooperation in allowing us to erect our Barn Owl box up in one of their barns, this has been a hugely successful project. There’s been little else from around the harbour other than plenty of churring Nightjar on a night jaunt last night. Peregrine Falcons are have been regular occurrence this summer with two birds seen yesterday, one over Poole town centre and another carrying a prey item over Wareham showing there could be numerous breeding birds locally. At Lytchett Bay there were 164 Black-tailed Godwit, 1 Dunlin, 2 Lapwing and 6 early returning Teal.
