Harbour Update – posted 23/06/15

A highlight certainly compared to the last couple of weeks came in the form of an Osprey over Poole town centre this afternoon, being harassed by gulls. We often see June and July Ospreys as failed breeders return south and first or second year birds wander the countryside looking for suitable breeding sites. It’s possible this bird could stay within the harbour for a few days, so worth keeping an eye out if at Arne or in the Wareham Channel. At RSPB Lytchett Fields there was 21 Redshank, 24 Lapwing, 4 Black-tailed Godwit, 9 Teal, 5 Gadwall, 18 Shelduck and 5 Curlew in the Bay. A Cuckoo was still calling up on Slepe Heath and the adult female Marsh Harrier was out on Arne Moors getting harassed by a Grey Heron.
