Harbour Update – posted 01/10/20

With October now upon us, it won’t be long before flocks of Redwing and Fieldfare can be heard overhead on cold autumn nights. Today, Yellow-browed Warblers are being encountered regularly along the east coast – although increasingly expected now, they are still a delight to see and hear. Within the harbour, the Long-billed Dowitcher remained present on Lytchett Fields, seen preening on French’s Pool island before moving to left hand end of Sherford Pool island. The Wood Sandpiper continued to show well as well, accompanied by a Curlew Sandpiper, Ringed Plover, Greenshank and 2 Green Sandpiper. Nearby, a Marsh Harrier quartered over Holton pools this afternoon. The Holes Bay Black-tailed Godwit roost hit 369, graced by a hunting Kingfisher. While 2 Firecrest were spotted at Llewelyn Woods, on the Western edge of Upton Country Park. Our free Poole Town walks got off to a lovely start with excellent views of Wheatear and 8 Ringed Plover at Baiter, Turnstones along the Quay and flyover highlights awarded to Grey Wagtail and Rock Pipit.
