Harbour Update – posted 01/10/15

There was a nice surprise at South Haven when a Snow Bunting passed across the harbour mouth at first light. Snow Bunting are really tricky to catch up with in the harbour with individuals only turning up once every few years. Studland is certainly the place to look with majority of sightings. Also at South Haven Studland 17 Crossbill with 247 Swallow, 1 Grey Wagtail, 40 Alba Wagtail, 41 Meadow Pipit, 1 Tree Pipit, 5 Song Thrush, 441 Goldfinch, 305 Siskin, 108 Linnet, 24 Redpoll, 28 Chaffinch all north and 3 Spoonbill across the harbour mouth. At Greenlands Farm there were 5 Spotted Flycatcher, 1 Wheatear, 13+ Blackcap, 1 Whitethroat and 10 Chiffchaff. There are still 6 Marsh Harrier making up the west harbour roost and a Merlin was seen on Coombe Heath, Arne.
