Harbour update – 05/02/18

A Great Northern Diver and 2 Black-necked Grebe were seen in Bramble Bush Bay, best viewed from near the House Boats. Over on Lytchett Fields RSPB 2 Spoonbill were once again feeding there as was a Water Pipit whilst a ringtail Hen Harrier hunted around the Bay. At Hatch Pond numbers of Snipe are starting to build again with at least 50 in “Elborn’s Cut” which is the section of cut reeds that can be observed from the viewing area in the conifers towards the north of the pond. The Sunnyside Tramway (near Ridge) held a Lesser Redpoll as well as several Greenfinch and Bullfinch.
