Harbour Update – posted 12/08/23

An excellent turn out to our first Pop-up Osprey Watch of the season at the Ham Common Viewpoint despite the wind, attendees were rewarded with both White-tailed Eagle and Osprey. The latter also put in an appearance at Arne earlier in the day, as well as Lytchett Bay where Cetti’s Warbler, Kingfisher and Marsh Harrier were all also seen from the Rock Lea Viewpoint. Yellow-legged Gull was seen in the Middlebere Channel along with Peregrine, Spoonbill, 9 Bar-tailed Godwit and the Forster’s Tern. On Brownsea Lagoon, a juvenile Little Tern was seen along with 19 Spoonbill, the 3 juvenile Avocet, 50+ Redshank, 200+ Dunlin, 18 Sanderling, 5 Turnstone, 12 Ringed Plover, 10 Greenshank, 1 Knot, 1 Spotted Redshank and 1 Common Sandpiper. Also of note was Great White Egret at South Haven, Studland.
