Harbour Update – posted 01/03/23

Spring is officially here! And just like clockwork, the first Little Ringed Plovers have begun arriving back into the UK with records in East Sussex and Hampshire. That said continued north-easterlies are keeping conditions decided cold and wintery at the moment and small flocks of Fieldfare were moving around the river valleys locally. Two Cattle Egret were still present in field by Worgret roundabout and an hour’s watch from Rock Lea View, Lytchett Bay featured Shoveler, Spotted Redshank and Tawny Owl calling. Turning to Lytchett Fields, Water Pipit 1K and Rock Pipit BT were also observed in Approach Field this morning. A visit to the Brands Bay hide produced views of a White-tailed Eagle drifting between Goathorn and Godlingstone Heath.
