In the summer of 2017, Birds of Poole Harbour began a five-year Osprey translocation project in partnership with the Roy Dennis Wildlife Foundation and Wildlife Windows with the aim of re-establishing this once common bird to its former breeding grounds here on the south coast. 2020 sees the fourth year of this exciting project get underway and with the success of last years Osprey boat tours we’re offering thirteen trips this summer for you to see and learn first hand from the project leaders about these incredible birds.
Osprey’s migrate through Poole Harbour every spring and autumn with the largest gatherings occurring around mid to late August. With up to five or six present for over a month. Our dawn boat trip will see us guided through one of their favourite hunting areas the Wareham Channel. You’ll be guided by one of the project leaders who will talk you through the project, the birds and the hopes and aspirations of the project.
So if you love Ospreys and you love the summer then join us by hopping on board!
The trip will leave promptly from the orange and white Greenslades ferry kiosk on Poole Quay at the times detailed above.
Nearest public car park is the Quay Visitors multi-storey located at Old Orchard, Poole BH15 1SB.
Hot and cold drinks and a limited range of snacks are available on board.
All boats have toilet facilities on board, a heated, covered lower deck and an open top deck.
Although every effort will be made to sail, the final decision will remain with the owners and skipper of the boat.
