Harbour Update – posted 03/11/22

On the falling tide at Lytchett Fields this morning, 1 Curlew Sandpiper, 1 Ruff, 1 Grey Plover and 1 Spotted Redshank were present. The highest count of Avocet in Lytchett Bay so far this season was logged this morning with 41 present, as well as 18 Brent Geese. 2 Black-necked Grebe were reported today, one visible in Brands Bay, and another between Goathorn and Brownsea Island.

With the mixed weather today it’s been a quiet day for sightings, though we anticipate tomorrow to be a more interesting morning, with clear skies and conditions that look ideal for strong Wood Pigeon movement. With movements of 62,000+ logged further along the Purbeck coastline yesterday, they are definitely on the move. We recommend an early start tomorrow, positioning yourself at key spots like Baiter Point or Evening Hill will hopefully prove fruitful in awaiting the large flocks of the pigeons passing through – keep your eyes on the skies!
