Harbour Update – posted 15/04/23

Mid-April often delivers the next wave of migrants and that rung true today with the harbours first Common Whitethroat of the year in the PCW Drain, and there was a stunning adult Yellow Wagtail on Wareham Common with Lytchett Bay seeing its first Reed Warbler of the spring. A Hobby was over Hartland, Swallow, Sand Martin and House Martin were logged passing in small numbers at numerous locations around the harbour. Off Hydes Heath, RSPB Arne, the White-tailed Eagle pair were seen out in the Wareham Channel, one chasing down a Canada Goose. Our Osprey pair were mega busy this morning nest building and bringing in material to the nest, possibly suggesting that CJ7 could be ready to lay her first egg any moment now.
