Harbour Update – posted 18/05/16

Our Med Gull story has gathered quite a bit of traction over the last couple of days getting some good press coverage and it appears it may even feature in the Sunday Times this weekend…great stuff!

With a bit more unsettled weather on the way, hopefully they’ll be the opportunity to provide one last drop of migrants before the early-mid summer doldrums kick in. Waders are still on the move, but the easterlies we were lucky to experience over the last two weeks certainly seemed to increase passage through the harbour. At Lytchett Fields highlights were 148 Black-tailed Godwit, 7 Dunlin, 1 Cuckoo, 4 Great Crested Grebe and a new Whitethroat in. At the PCW Drain, 4 Blackcap were active and a single Whitethroat was there. Over Old Town Poole, a max count of 12 Swift seemed fairly low, hopefully numbers will rise in the next few days. Around the Arne Peninsular Hobby’s were recorded above the Moors, near Middlebere and along the Arne Road.

We’re also thrilled to announce and present the winning entry for our logo design competition set last year. You can read about (and obviously already see) the new winning design by CLICKING HERE, but we’d again just like to say congratulations to Oni Wyatt, the winning designer and to everyone else that submitted entries, it was great fun to host and judge. We hope you like the winning design!
