Harbour Round Up – 25/11/13

Here is a brief round up from around the harbour today. 8 Woodcock were counted coming out from their daytime roosts near Soldiers Road also a Jack Snipe and 2 Common Snipe. This is a great time of year to look for Woodcock flying out of woodlands onto open fields to feed, literally 10-20 minuets before total darkness. At Lytchett Bay a male Marsh Harrier flew through, 159 Avocet, 152 Dunlin, 192 Lapwing plus good numbers of Curlew, Shelduck, Teal, Wigeon, Redshank and Oystercatcher also 1 Redpoll and 300+ Wood Pigeon overhead. The Surf Scoter was still out in Brands Bay and Great Northern Diver were present near the harbour mouth and off Brownsea. Off Baiter 2 Goldeneye, 4 Red-breasted Merganser and 5 Great Crested Grebe.
