Harbour Update – BOXING DAY 26/12/23

It was lovely to see a still, calm day for once, having felt a bit grey and overcast for some weeks now. Boxing Day often offers an opportunity for folk to get out and walk off the Christmas calories and it was nice to see a good selection of birds logged today. the White-tailed Eagle pair were causing trouble between Middlebere and Shipstal this morning and a male Hen Harrier was in Middlebere. Off Jerry’s Point there were 7 Great Northern Diver, 2 Slavonian Grebe, 3 Black-necked Grebe and 1 Long-tailed Duck. At Lytchett fields there was a single Spotted Redshank¬†and there were another 3 Great Northern Diver off Hamworthy Beach, 1 off Brownsea north shore and 1 off Shipstal Beach, RSPB Arne. A Great White Egret was in Middlebere.
