Harbour Update – posted 12/04/24

Great report of a Purple Heron over Little Sea and South Haven at Studland early this morning, which unfortunately hasn’t been refound later in the day. In 2018 a Purple Heron stayed at Little Sea for an extended period of time during July and again in August, and the most recent report in the Poole Harbour area was back in 2018 with an individual seen in flight over Stoborough.

Other highlights today included the Forster’s Tern on the Brownsea Lagoon this morning. An Osprey was seen over Lytchett Bay before it moved into the Wareham Channel. 2 White-tailed Eagle were seen mid-afternoon high over Poole Town / Holes Bay area. In Brands Bay, 1 Marsh Harrier, 1 Great Northern Diver, 6 Red-breasted Merganser and 8 Brent Geese were still present.
