A fresh and breezy Knoll Beach ‘pop up’ this morning rewarded visitors with 5 female Common Scoter, 6 Black-necked Grebe, 7 Mediterranean Gull, a pair of Red-breasted Merganser and small flocks of Brent Goose and Curlew passing south. Large gull flocks were feeding offshore, but no sign of a Gannet or Fulmar in Studland Bay this morning. The slightly more sheltered Jerry’s Point continues to remain the open water species hotspot boasting 4 Slavonian Grebe, 5 Black-necked Grebe, 10 Great Crested Grebe, 12 Red-breasted Merganser, 2 Great Northern Diver and 5 Goldeneye. A female Marsh Harrier was recorded over Bog Lane and the Morden Bog Great Grey Shrike was observed around Decoy Pool.
