Harbour Update – posted 23/05/23

Another stunning day across the harbour. The White-tailed Eagles put on a good show for our Spring Safari Cruise this AM with male G463 flying in from the south over Swineham and settling on the edge of the Wareham Channel and his mate G466 soaring high over RSPB Arne being mobbed by a minute Buzzard! There were Marsh Harrier active in and around the top end of the Wareham Channel and a male Goshawk was high over Slepe Heath. On the Swineham scrapes c40 winter plumaged Black-tailed Godwit were feed and a few Common Redshank were displaying. A few Lapwing, Swift and Swallow were moving around and 5 Cetti’s Warbler were along the river. On Brownsea a lone Spoonbill was roosting on the lagoon and there were 3 passage Sanderling and 9 Dunlin with 8 Bar-tailed Godwit and 2 dark-bellied Brent Geese. At Studland the 2 Eider (1 female and 1 juv male) were still out in Shell Bay, Studland.
