Harbour Update – posted 04/11/23

Last nights and this mornings storm seemed to force a few more birds in closer in to Poole Bay, with a sea watch at Branksome producing 6 petrels in total this morning, 5 of which were definitely European Storm Petrel and the 6th a possible Leaches Storm Petrel. Also of note out in Poole Bay were 2 Pintail, 1 Red-throated Diver (east), 9 dark-bellied Brent Geese, 9 Gannet, 1 Sanderling, 1 Razorbill and 76 Black-tailed Godwit. In Lytchett Bay, despite having been absent for 30 years, Thursdays Common Scoter in Lytchett Bay seems to have taken a liking to the area as it was back again today. Holes Bay totals seem to be building nicely with some good counts including 100 Avocet, 40 Dunlin, 39 Curlew, 30 Redshank, 300 Wigeon, 105 Shoveler, 100 Teal & 12 Pintail.
