Harbour Update – posted 11/07/22

Another hot day which drew in another White-tailed Eagle, this time a 2nd cal year male known as G812. He was released on the Isle of Wight in 2021 and today he joined the (currently) resident female G801 where they were seen soaring together high over the Wareham Channel around midday. Whether he sticks around or not is a different question as these young male eagles seem prone to explore as many areas as possible, regardless of whether there’s a lonely female present. At Lytchett Fields there were 71 Common Redshank, 2 Greenshank, 10 Green Sandpiper, 53 Lapwing, 10 Teal and 2 Little Ringed Plover. For the first time this season, male Osprey 022 has been seen fishing regularly out in the Wareham Channel on and off throughout the day. Yesterday he delivered seven fish to the nest, so he’s obviously upping his fishing efforts, perhaps to keep the chicks well fed and hydrated during this hot spell.
