Harbour Update – posted 11/04/24

The Hoopoe was seen again this morning although flighty, just north-east of Little Sea, Studland, along the track towards Knoll Beach. In Lytchett Bay there was 1 adult Yellow-legged Gull. On the Brownsea Lagoon the number of Spoonbill has increased to 4 and the Forster’s Tern was still present this morning.

In other news we are excited to announce we have now launched our Carey Osprey tours!

These 2-hour sessions between 8am-2pm will give a fantastic opportunity to see the only nesting pair of Ospreys on the south coast of England from an exclusive viewing platform, led by our Birds of Poole Harbour team in partnership with Careys Secret Garden.
Please make sure to book in advance as there are only 12 tickets available per session and there is no alternative access onsite for viewing the nest.
Please help us protect the birds by not turning up to Careys Secret Garden without booking, and not straying away from the permitted areas to try and view the Ospreys. The nest site is incredibly sensitive and Ospreys are a Schedule 1 species which means they are protected by law. We therefore ask that you are mindful not to disturb the birds and avoid attempting to get closer to the nest as this will risk the success of this very important nesting pair. We’re privileged to be able to now share this space with these birds, and ensuring their safety is our top priority.
We’ll be releasing the tickets in batches, month by month, so keep an eye on our website and newsletter for updates on more tickets being available.
