Harbour Update – posted 05/10/22

Bit grim today, but a perfect crisp autumn evening by the end with a couple Redwing ‘zeeping’ over Slepe Heath at dusk. A Marsh Tit was on feeders near the Piddle Valley, and White-tailed Eagle G801 was seen sheltering out on the salt marsh of the Wareham Channel. On the Brownsea Lagoon 66 Spoonbill arrived in at dawn having been feeding out on the early (and dark) morning low tide. A sea watch at Branksome returned 3 Brent Geese arriving into the harbour as well as low numbers of Gannet and Kittiwake passing by. The fist Jack Snipes of the autumn were also found with 1 at RSPB Arne and 2 at Sunnyside.
