Harbour Update – posted 07/03/24

Despite the cold NE breeze there was still plenty going on today, including more evidence of migration with a steady trickle of alba Wagtails and Meadow Pipits in off the sea at Ballard Down, plus a migrant 1st winer Goshawk flushed off the coastal path. The White-tailed Eagle pair were in Brands Bay this afternoon but made a bee-line along the inner Studland shoreline, across the harbour mouth, up and over Brownsea before then heading straight over Poole Quay, where they were later seen over Holes Bay. An adult male Marsh Harrier arrived in over Swineham Point where there were also 2 Spotted Redshank¬†and there was another Spotted Redshank in Holes Bay where the redhead Goosander was feeding close to the entrance of the PCW Drain in Holes Bay NE. There was a single Spoonbill on the Brownsea Lagoon along with c120 Bar-tailed Godwit. Out in central harbour there were 7 Great Northern Diver with 2 more off Jerry’s Point and off Redhorn Quay there was 1 Slavonian Grebe and 1 Black-necked Grebe with another off Middle Beach, Studland. The male Peregrine was on the Asda building this morning but no sign of the female.
