Harbour Update – posted 30/05/23

The clear blue skies are perfect for birds of prey, with 4 Red Kite seen over Fleetsbridge this morning, and 1 near Lytchett Fields later on. Also at Lytchett Fields, one male Little Ringed Plover was present today on French’s Pool. In Lytchett Bay, 1 Osprey (likely 022) was reported as well as 1 Marsh Harrier and 2 Common Tern. Not quite in the Poole Harbour area, but a Squacco Heron was also reported near Wool this afternoon flying west along the River Frome – wouldn’t it be nice if it flew back towards the harbour?!

Very exciting update from the Osprey nest, as the first chick hatched shortly after 10pm last night, and the second early this afternoon. We’ve been treated to close up views of the first feeds today through our livestream webcams and hopefully it won’t be long before we see signs of hatching on egg number three!

Two chicks getting fed by CJ7 and 022 this afternoon
