Harbour Update – posted 07/12/20

With barely a breath of wind all day, Monday remained a largely dank, viewless grey abyss. We could just make out a Shag on the water outside our office window on Poole Quay and that was about it. That said, there were still a few birds to be had including a pair of Red-breasted Merganser on Poole Park boating lake, a Peregrine on the Asda building and a Kingfisher along the Holes Bay cycle path. At Lytchett Fields a decent count of 607 Dunlin were on the fields plus 14 Avocet also ventured onto the fields to feed with 2 Greenshank and 4 Green Sandpiper.

We do have some good news though. Despite our events being postponed this month we’re seeking to set up a number of our ‘Pop Up’ events through December and possibly into January too, meaning that we can safely show you some of the best birds the harbour has to offer. More info coming soon.

This sums today up pretty much – Holes Bay – Martin Adams
