The Velvet Scoter was still in the company of 2 Common Scoter on the south side of Brownsea Island viewable distantly from The Houseboats as was a Black-throated Diver briefly. Elsewhere dotted around the harbour were at least 6 Great Northern Diver, 1 Slavonian Grebe, 2 Black-necked Grebe and the usual 20 or so Spoonbill were roosting on Shipstal Point. In Shell Bay there were 2 Great Northern Diver and 3 Black-necked Grebe whilst the Great Northern Diver continues its sojourn in Poole Park. Singles of Green Sandpiper and Greenshank were seen at both Holton Lee and Lytchett Fields RSPB, the latter site holding at least 1 Water Pipit. 2 Purple Sandpiper were again on groynes further east along the beach from North Haven and the wintering Spotted Redshank was seen again in Holes Bay.
