Come on, we need some rain now. These warm days are lovely, but several days almost topping 30 degrees is a bit much! This evening it stayed very mild for the duration of our Puffin Cruise which only returned 1 Puffin tonight, compared to 6 that were present yesterday evening. There were also 8 Fulmar on the water off Durlston and the two Peregrine families were still present at Durlston and Old Harry.

This morning we were thrilled to be able to help support on the release of the juvenile Peregrine Falcon that was found on Sunday evening in Poole Town. The bird was one of the Barclays Peregrines and was taken into care by ‘Wildlife Rescue’ from Ringwood having flown head first into a glass balcony. Thankfully it made a full recovery which allowed us to get the bird back on the Barclays building this morning where it was soon joined by both it’s parents and one of it’s siblings. A White-tailed Eagle was over Swineham this AM, being mobbed by one of the local Marsh Harriers. A Red Kite was over Lytchett Bay.
