Harbour Update – posted 02/05/21

Find of the day goes to a Pied Flycatcher picked up at Middlebere – a scarce spring migrant in a Poole Harbour context! The experience improved further with Wheatear and a vocal Cuckoo dashing around. The rising tide at Middlebere Channel offered few birds, with a single Greenshank and Whimbrel this highlights. The National Trust track down from the lay-by produced a singing Lesser Whitethroat first thing not far from the parking spaces and a Red Kite drifting high over Arne, while a passing visit to Soldiers Road offered 2 more Wheatear. Three Cattle Egrets on Frome Flood Fields this morning, viewed at distance from from Bog Lane.
