Ospreys with Paul Morton and Brittany Maxted

Indoor Events
Date: 15 December 2021 19:30

On 15th  December at 7.30pm via Zoom Paul Morton and Brittany Maxted of the Birds Of Poole Harbour Osprey Project will be presenting OSPREYS.

Ospreys haven’t bred on the south coast of England for around 200 years. But could the tide be about to turn for this mighty sea hawk? Find out about the exciting project to reintroduce ospreys to Poole Harbour.

Paul and Brittany of the charity, Birds of Poole Harbour will outline the osprey project which began in 2017, in collaboration with the Roy Dennis Wildlife Foundation and Wildlife Windows.

It involves the translocation of 60 juvenile ospreys from Scottish nests into the Poole Harbour area. This process aims to create a bond between the young ospreys and their new local area, before they migrate to West Africa. The hope is that, once matured, the birds will return to Poole Harbour to breed.

Paul said: “Now in its fifth year, the project has brought the very real prospect of seeing these incredible birds of prey breeding here once again in Poole, almost 180 years after their local extinction. Re-introductions are a proactive and exciting approach to modern conservation and we hope that our osprey work paves the way for re-introductions of many species to take place across the UK.”
