Harbour update – posted 02/12/13

A decent number of reports from yesterday, but unfortunately after much searching the Glossy Ibis couldn’t be relocated at Middlebere, or anywhere else for that matter. It’s still well worth checking further up the river valleys and out on various secluded flood meadows, as these are all prime Glossy Ibis habitat.  An early morning watch at Middlebere still produced a male Hen Harrier, juvenile Marsh Harrier, 462 Avocet, c800 Black-tailed Godwit, and a Green Sandpiper. Out in Brands Bay 5 Eider have now appeared with 2 Great Northern Diver and good numbers of Red-breasted Merganser and Great Crested Grebe. Out from Knoll/Middle Beach Studland a total of 40 Black-necked Grebe were in several loose flocks. In Lytchett Bay a ringtail Hen Harrier was present also there a flock of 60+ Fieldfare, 178 Shelduck, 1 Cetti’s Warbler, 200+ Lapwing, 12 Snipe, 4 Raven, 4 Water Rail and 2 Greenshank
