Harbour Update – posted 22/03/23

With possibly only a week or two left until the main bulk of Ospreys start arriving back into the UK, we were thrilled to be able to re-launch our Osprey nest cam(s) today with several improvements on last year, including two new camera angles and now sound as well! All we need now is some Ospreys. These new angles should give us all the views we need to be able to see and hear all of this years comings and goings, including the hatching, raising and fledging of more wild Osprey chicks later in the year. Here’s a blog giving an overview of the new camera set ups, including an update on the status of the old nest cam – New Osprey Nest Cam Blog

The weather today once again didn’t fill many birders with joy as strong winds bellowed across the harbour. Highlights including 2 House Martin in off the sea at Middle Beach, Studland with 2 summer plumaged Black-necked Grebe still out in Studland Bay. A Little Ringed Plover was at Lytchett Fields, at Swineham 3 Swallow, 19 Sand Martin and a drake Pochard were on and over the gravel pit and the White-tailed Eagle pair were in the Wareham Channel again this morning.
