Harbour Update – posted 28/08/23

The first ringed migrant Osprey of the year was photographed in Lytchett Bay today, a juvenile Scottish bird ringed 5E0. There were at least five other individuals around the harbour throughout the course of the day, including an unringed juvenile in Holes Bay and several in the Wareham Channel alongside both White-tailed Eagles, with the female G466 sat right on the shore incredibly close to our afternoon Osprey Cruise! Other highlights included 1 Cattle Egret on the Keysworth Shore, Hobby and Marsh Harrier over Arne, a family of 6 Buzzard together over Brownsea, 33 Spoonbill on the lagoon plus 1 Sanderling amongst a flock of Ringed Plover & Dunlin, and a flock of 15+ Turnstone off Hamworthy. Key sightings from elsewhere were 9 Spotted Redshank and 15 Knot in the Middlebere Channel and Forster’s Tern off Shipstal.
