Harbour Update – posted 25/02/23

Two White-tailed Eagle circling over Wareham at 11am was quite the spectacle for anyone looking up while mooching around the town market on a Saturday morning. The male, G466, was also seen observed catching a Canada Goose in the Wareham Channel this morning – marking the first successful hunt observed in Poole Harbour for several hundred years! During the action, a Hen Harrier was also quartering the western fringes of the harbour to add to the excitement!

Lytchett Fields received good coverage, featuring at least 2 Water Pipits (one colour-ringed), littoralis Rock PipitPeregrine, Marsh Harrier, Spotted Redshank, Green Sandpiper, 2 Grey Plover, 45 Dunlin, a lone Curlew, 49 Black-tailed Godwit and similar numbers of Common Redshank and Lapwing. Eight Spoonbill continued to show at RSPB Arne.
