The Poole Member’s Group of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds in association with Brownsea Island Ferries Ltd have organised a series of guided boat trips with a knowledgeable local birdwatcher on board to help and inform.
Winter months show nationally important numbers of Shelduck, Black-tailed Godwit, Avocet and Red-breasted Merganiser. On most trips you will see Great Crested Grebe, Heron, Cormorant, Shag, Brent Geese and Goldeneye, Little Egret, Oystercatchers, Redshank, Curlew and a variety of gulls. There is also a chance of seeing Blackthroated and Great Northern Divers, Blacknecked Grebe, Spoonbill, Scaup, Common Scoter, Eider and Harriers.
Said to be the second largest harbour in the world Poole Harbour offers stunning views.
Make it a weekend.
