Poole Harbour is the second-largest natural harbour in the world and is a hotspot for British wildlife. The local area is teeming with activity, making it possible to discover wildlife throughout Poole, either at one of the local nature reserves, including Brownsea Island or RSPB Arne, or close to the town, such as Holes Bay or on Poole Quay.
You can even view local wildlife without leaving your home! Through high-quality webcams positioned around the harbour, accessible through the Birds of Poole Harbour website.
Our Children’s Art Week 2020 Natural World activity is inspired by the wonderful wildlife of Poole. Follow our step-by-step guide to create your own Birds of Poole Harbour hanging mobile.
This event is open to the public.
