Portland's Bird Monitoring

Portland Harbour is protected to the South and East by four rock armour breakwaters two of which are completely isolated from the land. Totalling over 4.5 km in length, these breakwaters provide a unique habitat for wildlife. The inaccessible nature of the breakwaters limits human disturbance and proves a favourable breeding site for various species of seabirds. Working with the local ornithological community the port has been part of a longterm ringing effort, which works to ring juvenile birds allowing them to be tracked and identified by ornithologists throughout their lifetime.
