Harbour Update – posted 25/06/23

With July arriving at the end of the week and the temperature forecast to drop, a short break from the summer heat wouldn’t go a miss, especially if some rain can be provided too. We’re already seeing some more autumn movers with more Green Sandpipers turning up today with 1 at Coombe Heath, Arne and another at Swineham. Also at Coombe Heath a Hobby drifted over, spooking a roosting Nightjar on the heath. At Swineham a territorial Redshank pair were active and vocal near the footpath, suggesting they had young near by. An Osprey drifted north over Sandy Lane, Upton this morning and there are still 4 White-tailed Eagle in the Wareham Channel area, with several sightings from the Ham Common viewpoint throughout the day.
