Harbour Update – posted 21/07/22

Over at Lytchett Fields breeding Gadwall were confirmed after a female was spotted with 4 young. An early passage Sedge Warbler was also recorded from the French’s Pool viewpoint, along with 3 juvenile Stonechat. On Brownsea Lagoon a creche of 16+ young Shelduck, was accompanied but 40+Redshank.

Our eldest osprey chick (5H1) is right on the cusp of fledging, and her sister (5H2) not far behind, with plenty of wing flapping from both in today’s breeze, and some brief but serious clearance from 5H1 around 2pm. Even once fledged they won’t venture far from the nest and will always come back for food, but they’ll have a whole new world to explore!
