Harbour Update – posted 11/06/23

It was good to receive some rain today, even if it was only a light drizzle for the first part of the morning. It was a much needed dampening down for the area. It didn’t seem to down any rare or common migrants en route north (or south), but did deliver some more juvenile Lapwing to Lytchett Fields with 5 there today. This evening our Puffin Cruise was finally able to depart after weeks of steady SE winds, with 4 Puffin seen, mostly on the cliffs of Dancing Ledge and the 2 Eider were still in Shell Bay on the way back. A White-tailed Eagle was seen from the Ham Common viewpoint this morning and 3 were still in the general vicinity of the Wareham Channel late afternoon. Also, we fully understand everyone is gripped to the Osprey nest cam, however, don’t forget we have two equally exciting webcams set up on the Brownsea Lagoon which we put up earlier this year in partnership with Dorset Wildlife Trust which are focused on the Common Tern and Sandwich Tern colony. Both colonies have hatched juveniles with the Sandwich Terns a few weeks more advanced. You can view both ‘Tern Cams’ HERE.
