The Ham Common Osprey Watches are back!

Last year, Birds of Poole Harbour announced a new partnership project with the BCP Council environment team establishing an Osprey watch point at Ham Common Viewpoint, Hamworthy. We are pleased to confirm that Birds of Poole Harbour will be returning to Ham Common again this autumn with even more dates!

Drop by to learn all about the Poole Harbour Osprey Translocation Project while scanning the Wareham Channel as birds set out on their morning's fishing rounds. Wareham Channel is Poole Harbour’s premier fishing hotspot, with mid-August to early-September being the peak time to spot Osprey in the harbour as migrants fuel up before continuing south to their wintering grounds in West Africa.

Where to find us Ham Common Viewpoint, Hamworthy. 30 minutes free parking available at Ham Common BCP Council pay & display car park, Napier Road (Rockley Holiday Park), BH15 4RW.

Time Join us anytime between 9.00am and 12.00pm.

Cost Free. Donations welcome - a contactless donation station will be available.
