Harbour Update – posted 29/06/23

There was more signs of return autumn passage today with 5 Little Ringed Plover at Lytchett Fields, an early Whimbrel in Lytchett Bay and a Common Sandpiper at Holme Lane GP. Plus, 10 Curlew and 8 Common Redshank are now already beginning to be seen in Holes Bay. In Upton CP last night 2 juvenile Tawny Owl were calling. At the Osprey nest yesterday evening the first post-breeding flock of Mistle Thrush was seen with a group of 24 feeding togther. White-tailed Eagle pair G466 and G463 were viewable from the Ham Common viewpoint on and off throughout the day, to the far right looking out towards the gull islands. A Red Kite drifted over Wareham meadows and the Mediterranean Gulls on Poole Quay continue to impress.
