Harbour update – 11/02/18

Clear but windy conditions meant that choppy waters in the harbour made it difficult to count birds on the water for today’s WeBS count. Brand’s Bay highlights included singles of Red-necked Grebe, Whimbrel, Greenshank and Peregrine as well as 45 Knot, 8 Sanderling and 7 Turnstone. In Lytchett Bay there were 4 Spoonbill, 1 Water Pipit and 1 Green Sandpiper whilst a ringtail Hen Harrier was still touring the general area also being seen at Holton Lee. A Great Northern Diver was slightly unusual so far up the harbour in Holes Bay opposite the Premier Inn. At Sunnyside there was a Green Sandpiper with good numbers of Redwing in the area. 2 Hawfinch were seen flying over Policemans Lane at the extreme west of Upton and 1 was seen again near Norden Sewage Works where there was also a Marsh Tit, 3 Chiffchaff and about 15 Siskin.
