Harbour Update – posted 07/03/16

For the gulls spring is really getting going as the islands off Holton Lee become more and more packed with Black-headed Gulls and to a lesser extent Med Gulls. From the Holton Lee viewpoint a Hen Harrier was seen down towards Swineham and a Peregrine was out over the channel. Out in the fields a party of c50 Redwing are still foraging and are now joined by Meadow Pipits. At the PC World Drain 8 Chiffchaff were counted and the Firecrest was still present there. Out on the Brownsea Lagoon 2 Spoonbill are now frequent visitors having spent most of the winter at Arne and Middlebere and c100 Avocet and c300 Black-tailed Godwit were also on the lagoon. In Holes Bay north, you can still get great views of species such as Avocet, Dunlin, Black-tailed Godwit and Oystercatcher as they get forced close to the cycle path by the rising tide.
