Harbour Update – posted 13/04/23

An Osprey with a blue ring on right leg briefly landed on one of the nest perches this morning. Too far away to be able to read it sadly, but it will be an English or Welsh hatched individual! Hopefully it will stick around and touch down on one of our platforms so we can confirm the ring number. In other exicting news, the first Puffins have been sighted back at Dancing Ledge along the Purbecks. Two individuals were spotted c.200m out at sea. A White-tailed Eagle was seen soaring low over the Ham Common Viewpoint. A Red Kite was picked up over Lytchett Bay Airspace around 11AM and 4 Wheatear occupied Sunnyside. An impressive 607 Black-tailed Godwit, many having now acquired their stunning summer plumages.
