Harbour Update – posted 02/11/22

Although fleeting, clearer skies in the morning saw a minor movement of Wood Pigeon across the harbour with 200 shifted over Stoborough. Further along the Purbeck coastline witnessed 62,000+(!). Impressive numbers considering the conditions were more suitable for a seawatch. And a stint from Branksome Chine beach huts doing exactly that produced a group of 7 Kittiwake, 1 Common Scoter, 2 Great Crested Grebe and 3 Gannet. Over at Lytchett Bay, French’s Island logged Curlew Sandpiper and Mediterranean Gull while the Ruff occupied Sherford Pools. Poole Park featured 150+ Cormorants again this morning, accompanied by 7 Sandwich Tern, 7 Greylag, a single Little Grebe and 35 Oystercatcher, with 70 more of the latter on Baiter.
