Harbour Update – posted 12/01/23

Congratulations to the RSPB Arne team, as well as the local Natural England and Environment Agency team who yesterday saw their joint planning application for the Arne Moors managed realignment scheme accepted. For context, think Lytchett Fields but 5x bigger! Talking of Lytchett Bay, Otter Point featured a single Spoonbill this morning.

A rather damp visit to Baiter Park offered c.230 Brent Geese, 140 Oystercatchers, small group of Turnstone and c.400 strong feeding flock of Starling. Around the corner, 3 Goldeneye were the best of Poole Park. A lone Slavonian Grebe continues to show off the Shell Bay shoreline, as well as 4 Great Northern Diver. With White-fronted Goose over the county border in Hampshire the last couple of days, check those goose flocks!

The forecast for tomorrow’s year-list kick-starter cruise is set to enjoy clear bright skies and there’s still some places available! All our upcoming events can be viewed here (and our spring/summer dates will be released soon!).
