Harbour Update – posted 24/07/22

A windier, less exciting day today, although Osprey chick ‘5H1’ went for several more flights around the nest area, learning a few new favoured landing spots and familiarising her self with the local landscape. Her sibling ‘5H2’ seemed less enthusiastic, especially as the wind built during the day, making flying conditions a tad trickier. She did do several high, hovering flights above the nest, so itv really won’t be long until she too makes her first leap into the unknown.

Elsewhere the wind seemed to keep birders at bay, with limited sightings including 4 Common Sandpiper, 2 Whimbrel, 1 Ringed Plover and 2 Greenshank at Lytchett Fields. Female White-tailed Eagle G801 was in the Wareham Channel briefly.
