Osprey - Simon KidnerSwallowHobby

Following on from the highly successful Spring Safari Cruises, Birds of Poole Harbour are excited to launch a new series of Summer Safaris. Join the team on a mornings charter around the harbour in search of the BIG SIX while enjoying the breeding season in full swing. Poole Harbour supports nationally important populations of breeding Mediterranean Gull, Sandwich and Common Tern populations - contributing towards the various important qualifying feature species of the harbour's SPA designation. A couple of the translocated White-tailed Eagles from the Isle of Wight Project have become regular harbour go-ers and have featured reliably through the spring. The guided birding tour of the harbour will also include an overview of the Osprey Translocation Project and its progress, along with some of the finer project details, latest updates and what we can expect to happen next! The exact route will be decided on the day, taking into account the state of the tide and latest sightings, to maximise the potential of the cruise so no two trips will be the same!

The BIG SIX - Osprey, White-tailed Eagle, Marsh Harrier, Peregrine, Hobby and Goshawk.

Booking essential. Please note, these trips are weather dependent. Although every effort will be made to run, if the ferry company decides that weather conditions prevent the boat running then the event will be cancelled and a full refund made available. We're currently offering a restricted number of tickets based on government guidelines, but should the restrictions ease and capacity for each trip increase, we’ll allocate more tickets if we know it’s safe and responsible to do so.
