Harbour Update – posted 04/04/16

With only one Osprey sighting so far this spring, its been left to the other raptor species to keep up the show with the ringtail Hen Harrier once again being seen out around the Wareham Channel with a single Merlin. The three Marsh Harrier are still busy as the bonded pair actively showing interest in one another, whilst the second female is struggling to gain the males attention. At Lytchett Bay/Fields a Sandwich Tern was in the Bay, a single Willow Warbler and several Chiffchaff were in the field fringes and on the fields were 2 Greenshank, 108 Black-tailed Godwit, 10 Sand Martin over and a single Wigeon. Out on Poole Park Lake were 2 Red-breasted Merganser and 2 Great Crested Grebe. At the PC World Drain 5 Blackcap were present including a few singing males, also 4 Willow Warbler and 5+ Chiffchaff. At Holton Lee a Tree Pipit was singing with a Woodlark, also 10+ Chiffchaff, 7 Linnet and 2 each of Green Sandpiper and Greenshank on Holton Pools. At Baiter 9 Turnstone were feeding on the shoreline.
