Harbour Highlights – posted 07/02/14

Apologise for the lack of updates this week. With the strong winds and heavy rain its made birding difficult but a few hardy birders have been out and reported some nice birds. Starting off with Baiter Park where two 1st winter Little Gull were reported out on the playing fields along with a Pale-bellied Brent Goose, 460 Dark-bellied Brent Goose and a Merlin. Off shore there was the Slavonian Grebe and Black-throated Diver and at Poole Park the redhead Goosander remained. The Poole Harbour Marsh Harrier roost contained 11 birds this morning and male Hen Harriers were seen at Middlebere and Hartland. In the sunshine today Dartford Warbler were displaying despite the chilly wind and out in the harbour Great Northern Diver, Black-necked Grebe and 150 Red-breasted Merganser were present.
