Harbour Update – posted 06/01/17

Despite the cold, some people were out and that resulted in the exciting report of an American Wigeon hidden in amongst the Eurasian Wigeon off Upton CP. This would only constitute the second ever Poole Harbour record, but despite a mass search it couldn’t be re-found. The Lesser Yellowlegs was on Lytchett Fields, 18 Spoonbill were on Shipstal and 2 Great Northern Diver were off the house boats, Studland. Finally a large Starling murmuration has been forming over South Haven, Studland over the last few nights with around 5-7000 performing magically over the Shell Beach car park around 4pm.
