Harbour Update – posted 13th & 14th June 2020

It was a fairly quiet weekend with a few reports coming our way, including female Osprey CJ7 being sighted out over the Wareham Channel and Arne. Hobby were over Arne, Hartland, Lytchett Fields and Middlebere. The female Marsh Harrier was seen out over Giggers Island and the Sandwich Terns on Brownsea are doing well and are already growing flight feathers. It also sounds like it’s a good time to listen out for Crossbill as numerous small flocks have recently been heard moving from breeding sites to potential new feeding areas with birds being heard over Parkstone, Merley, Wareham and Arne. Below is an Autumn recording to familiarise yourself with the flight calls they make whilst on migration.
