Harbour Update – posted 03/11/15

Despite the rain and fog there was quite a bit of coverage today. Only 4 Marsh Harrier were seen to come out of the west Poole Harbour roost, however at the same time both a Merlin and Peregrine were sat out on posts on Hartland and a ringtail Hen Harrier was out over the Wareham Channel. Middlebere saw a good haul of birds too with 3 separate Marsh Harrier, 1 ringtail Hen Harrier, 1 Peregrine, 1 Merlin, 475 Avocet, 600+ Black-tailed Godwit, 8 Spotted Redshank, 5 Grey Plover and 2 Greenshank. Off Middlebere Beach, Studland there were 9 Black-necked Grebe and 6 Common Scoter, whilst a vis-mig session at South Haven produced 291 Goldfinch, 1+ Brambling, 47 Meadow Pipit and an adult winter Little Gull entered the harbour mouth.
