Harbour Update – posted 03/02/24

A typical early February day. Well, typical for these days. There were 22 Cattle Egret on Wareham Common, 2 White-tailed Eagles in the Wareham Channel and a male Hen Harrier was in Lytchett Bay. A Black-throated Diver was off Sandbanks, a Slavonian Grebe was in Studland Bay and another off Jerry’s Point. The 8 Waxwing were once again commuting between Canford Asda and Dacolme Drive, Upton. At RSPB Arne 11 Spoonbill were roosting, there were Spotted Redshank at Middlebere and Lytchett Fields and at Hatch Pond a decent roost of 180 Magpie settled in the trees. Just outside our recording area in West Morden one of our team found a Little Bunting in a cover crop with c15 Reed Bunting. The excitement didn’t end there as a female Cirl Bunting was then also found in the same area which shows some over-wintering individuals are now moving further east compared to previous years.
