Harbour Update – posted 04/05/15

Well, at least this morning started off OK, we’ll just have to wait and see how strong the forecasted winds of tomorrow will be…hopefully strong enough to make a few skuas want to rest and take shelter in Poole Bay. The best from today included a Lesser Whitethroat on territory up on Old Harry and 11 Wheatears in a field there too. A steady trickle of hirundines and Swifts came through for most of the day with 30+ over Swineham this morning, along with 1 Cuckoo, 6 Reed Warbler and a Marsh Harrier there too. At Challow Hill 2 Lesser Whitethroat were singing, as were 2 Nightingale, 1 Cuckoo, 3 Yellowhammer, 1 Peregrine and 5 Whitethroat. At Lytchett Bay there were 2 Egyptian Geese, 2 Spotted Redshank, 3 Greenshank, 3 Black-tailed Godwit, 7 Gadwall, 98 Shelduck, 1 Greenshank 3 Whimbrel. There was also a Cuckoo on Slepe Heath.

We’re pleased to say that there is an exciting and very informative up and coming talk coming on May 20th,hosted by Dr Emily Joachim who will be talking about her incredible research, passion and drive to help save the countries smallest owl…the Little Owl. For more info click HERE

It was also nice to get out early this morning too and take some video footage which I haven’t for a while. CLICK HERE for more footage of recent spring birds.
