Harbour Sightings – posted 15/05/14

The large high-pressure system and open blue skies over Dorset this morning did little to help bring down any new arrivals. That said, what I assume is the same super elusive Great White Egret was seen flying up the Frome Valley again, this time over Ridge, but yet again was impossible to relocate anywhere in the surrounding area. This could potentially be the same bird that over-wintered in the harbour this year, and it seems to be choosing to roost somewhere on Arne at night and feeding in the Frome Valley during the day. At East Holme a female Whinchat was a minor consolation during the Egret relocation efforts, also a Cuckoo near the Wareham bypass. At Lytchett Bay Black-tailed Godwit numbers rose to 161 and 2 Redshank were also present.
