Harbour update – posted 08/03/14

The first Sand Martins of the spring were at Swineham this morning with 2 over the Gravel Pits, also a marsh Harrier there. Up on Slepe Heath 3 Woodlark were feeding and 2 Dartford Warbler were active. At Lytchett Bay this tonight a Barn Owl flew over the wet fields, 1 Woodcock, 15+ Snipe and a Redshank were also noted whilst late afternoon produced 2 Spoonbill, 1 ringtail Hen Harrier, 1 Spotted Redshank and one each of over-wintering Chiffchaff and Blackcap. In Brands Bay there were 3 Spoonbill and 4 Knot and the Great Grey Shrike is still currently on Godlingston Heath. There was even a report of a very early House Martin flying around Arne Farm briefly this morning, which would be a really early record with the first week of April being their normal arrival time.
