Harbour Update – posted 05/03/17

The statement ‘a mixture of sunshine and showers’ has never been so true with heavy down pours and bright sunshine battling it for most of the day. A strong stiff SW wind made things quite tricky too. The Snow Bunting was again present on Shell Beach, feeding on beach cast seaweed with 2 Stonechat, up near Pilots Point with the imm drake Eider just off Pilots Point and a Sandwich Tern fishing in the bay. Also 30 Sanderling were feeding on the beach. The Lesser Yellowlegs and Green-winged Teal were both still on Lytchett Fields with 2 Water Pipit, 23 Gadwall (where have they come from)? And both Marsh Harrier and Peregrine over. A Scaup was again reported from the main Poole Park boating lake and on the Brownsea Lagoon 9 Pintail, 127 Grey Plover, 42 Knot, 7 Greenshank, 5 Spotted Redshank and an adult Yellow-legged Gull. On Shipstal 15 Spoonbill were roosting. The 4 Waxwing were still in Corfe Mullen at Hanham Road.
