Harbour Update – posted 22/07/20

Today was a much quieter day with a very hot sun beating down onto the harbour. Any migration had tailed off by 9am but a male Cuckoo on the edge of Wareham Forest was noteworthy. An Osprey flew over Arne Moors, viewed from Slepe Heath, as it seemed to drop down and pick something up from the ground which was odd, before then flying off towards Arne. A Marsh Harrier was at Lytchett Bay along with a good suit of waders still including 3 Common Sandpiper, 1 Spotted Redshank, 2 Little ringed Plover, 3 Whimbrel, 42 Redshank, 48 Lapwing, 4 Green Sandpiper, 9 Dunlin, 3 Greenshank and 4 Green Sandpiper.

Also, if you haven’t seen yet, we’ve refined and reorganised our Osprey cruises that occur in late August by reducing the number of trips we’re doing as well as guest capacity. This means our timetable is much reduced and we’re now only carrying out trips on August 17th, 18th, 19th, 20th, 21st, 22nd and 23rd. There are still tickets available though so if you’re keen to join us and get out in the fresh air then please visit our bookings page for more information.
