Harbour Update – posted 31/07/22

July comes and goes with our Osprey family looking content and settled now that both chicks have fledged and been on the wing for over a week now. Annoyingly one of the chicks landed on the camera this afternoon and knocked the lens down again but we’re hoping that with a re-boot we can get it in the right position again. Its sad to think that August will be the month we see them leave, meaning we only have a few weeks left before they all depart south, but with our Osprey cruises starting in about 3 weeks, we hope that for some trips we’ll be lucky enough to see the youngsters at some point.

Talking of cruises, this morning we headed out on our penultimate Summer Safari, heading up the Wareham Channel. Singles of Marsh Harrier and Spotted Redshank were logged also 3 Spoonbill were over Swineham Point, 5 Greenshank, c300 Black-tailed Godwit and 1 Common Seal. In Middlebere there was a Juvenile Spoonbill, 4 Spotted Redshank, 12 Greenshank 6 Curlew, 2 Yellow-legged Gull, 1 Marsh Harrier and 1 Green Sandpiper.
