Birds of Poole Harbour

Enjoy spectacular wildlife with friendly experts
Birds of Poole Harbour is a new one-stop-shop resource for visitors looking to find out more about the harbour and the spectacular wildlife it supports.
Opened in March 2018, the visitor centre helps visitors to learn about the harbour’s rich and varied bird life, as well as offering a range of interactive experiences, showcasing the harbour’s ecological importance.
The harbour is recognised as nationally and internationally important area for several different species of bird and is also afforded SPA (Special Protection Area) designation. It is also a specially protected RAMSAR site and has numerous SSSI’s (Sites of Special Scientific Interest) bordering the harbour.
For novices or experts, learning where and when to go birding around the harbour can sometimes provide a logistical and geographical headache.
Local environmental education charity ‘Birds of Poole Harbour Birds, are on hand to help you fulfil your birding wish list. New interactive maps will help 'fill in the gaps' for any trips and help visitors plan.
