Harbour Update – posted 06/02/15

Still cold and still not much change in the birds. There were 3 Spoonbill at the Holes Bay outflow today plus two Spotted Redshank and a Common Sandpiper. There are still 3 Hen Harrier in the harbour and 2 Merlin were on Hartland. 1 possibly 2 Bittern were out on Arne Moors and Marsh Harrier can still be seen fairly easily around the Wareham Channel. Out in the harbour Goldeneye seem to have overtaken Red-breasted Merganser in total number visible and a Peregrine was hunting over Shipstal. 2 Great Northern Diver are still off the Brownsea north shore. Holes Bay south was packed to the rafters this evening on the low tide with Avocet, Black-tailed Godwit, Curlew, Redshank, Oystercatcher, Black-headed Gull and Shelduck making up the main bulk of species.
