HAPPY NEW YEAR! – Yes…it all starts again!

Lots of people out today starting their year lists, and despite the drizzle a good haul was logged. Off Jerry’s Point the 2 Long-tailed Duck were still present along with 2 Great Northern Diver, 1 Slavonian Grebe, 3 Black-necked Grebe and 1 Common Scoter. In Holes Bay south there was 1 Great Northern Diver with another off Hamworthy Beach. In Poole Park a Water Rail was seen on the main boating lake along with 2 Goldeneye. In Middlebere there were 2 Spoonbill, 1 Hen Harrier, 1 Marsh Harrier, 1 Merlin, 1 Firecrest, 2 Egyptian Geese and decent totals of Avocet, Dunlin, Grey Plover, Wigeon and Teal. At Lytchett Fields there was a single Spotted Redshank, 2 Greenshank, 2 Green Sandpiper, 105 Lapwing and 22 Dunlin. A Great White Egret was seen briefly at the mouth of the Wytch Channel and off Middle Beach, the easterly wind forced 8 Black-necked Grebe close into the shore. The Siberian Chiffchaff was still in the ditch along the River Piddle, along Wareham Common.
