Harbour Update – posted 22/06/23

It’s getting very warm again! Perfect for Nightjar watching, which is why it was no surprise that they were incredibly active on our Nightjar walk at Slepe Heath last night. A minimum of 8 were seen, but there was lots of territorial chasing, wing clapping, singing and calling going on. Just spectacular to watch against a warm, glowing sunset over Poole Harbour. Also on Slepe Heath was 1 Cuckoo, 3-4 Dartford Warbler, a Kestrel family in a box and a Glow Worm to top off the walk. The 2 over-summering Eider were in Poole harbour entrance, 3 White-tailed Eagle were ‘loitering’ around the Wareham Channel area and there were 2 Hobby high over the Piddle Valley.
