Harbour Update – posted 13/03/24

It was a quiet day bird-wise today, but by far the most significant event to happen is that we’re now able to deliver you back a pretty familiar sight into your living rooms, kitchens, work spaces, mobile phones and tablets, and that is of course the return of the Poole Harbour Osprey nest cameras. With the early recent Osprey arrivals in Scotland and Rutland, and with another new arrival today in the Midlands, we thought we’d best get a wriggle on and get the cameras up and running at Careys Secret Garden as soon as possible as we’d hate to miss the (hopeful) arrival of CJ7 and or 022 over the coming days. The camera angles are the same as last year, but having been up to service the cameras a few weeks ago, we’d noticed some Squirrel chewing damage and therefore had to replace the aerial view camera which is actually slightly higher spec. All we have to do now is sit, wait and be patient as all being well we’ll see the safe return of our Poole Harbour pair for their third breeding season. You can watch both webcam live streams HERE. Pending their successful arrival, we hope to be running more Osprey Tours with Careys Secret Garden this year, so watch this space…

It was mainly a raptor day today with 4 Marsh Harrier, 1 Hen Harrier, 1 Merlin and both White-tailed Eagles in the Wareham Channel area, 1 Red Kite over Arne and 1 Goshawk over Swineham. The Goosander was still in Holes Bay, there were 3 Spoonbill in Middlebere. On Wareham Common 29 Cattle Egret were feeding with 5 Little Egret dotted amongst them.
