Harbour Update – posted 11/10/21

Yesterdays White-tailed Eagle, male G461 which is one of the reintroduced birds from the Isle of Wight was seen again in the Wareham Channel briefly this morning but not seen since. Hopefully he’s still around and explores the south and west of the harbour a bit more over the next few weeks. There were also plenty of other birds of prey in the Wareham Channel area including a Red Kite over, 1 female Merlin zipping over Arne Moors, 1 Peregrine at Swineham and masses of Marsh Harrier activity with a minimum of 5 (but possibly up to 8) around the mouth of the Piddle/Frome, plus several tussles high above Keysworth, as well as individuals around Middlebere and Lytchett Bay. There were also still several pulses of Swallow and House Martin high above the Wareham Channel and a decent passage of Meadow Pipit was going on all day. In Middlebere there were 2 Great White Egret and another in Brands Bay.
