Harbour Update – posted 03/12/19

We’re loving these cold, still days. It’s making watching the harbour an absolute treat. Highlights today included 3 Cetti’s Warbler, 1 Firecrest and 8 Chiffchaff at the PCW Drain. Holes Bay NE looked INCREDIBLE and was full of birds with 700+ Wigeon, 400+ Teal, 4 Pintail, 2 Tufted Duck, 3 Coot (odd in Holes Bay), 300+ Dunlin, 132 Avocet, plenty of Redshank, Curlew, Black-tailed Godwit and Oystercatcher, 2 Rock Pipit and a party of c40 Redwing over. At Lytchett Bay 181 Avocet were logged along with 40+ Dunlin and 1 Greenshank. Off Middle Beach 6 Black-necked grebe and 1 Great Northern Diver were feeding and the Long-tailed Duck was off Jerry’s Point again.
