Harbour Update – posted 09/03/15

A good variety and number of migrants are now entering the UK with Ring Ouzel, Wheatear, Sand Martin, Swallow, Little Ringed Plover and Osprey all recorded today somewhere in the country. These are classic early spring migrants and they should be appearing in the harbour any day now, if not here already.  Today in the warm sunshine a few migrant Chiffchaff were singing in the company of their over-wintering relatives. Black-necked Grebes were at South Haven, the houseboats and Middle Beach with a Slavonian Grebe at the latter site. The Great Grey Shrike was again on Godlingston though distant. A Siberian Chiffchaff and a Firecrest were near the holes Bay outflow.

A few weeks ago we updated you with a new initiative that saw a joint venture between the RSPB, a private landowner, and us in which we were opening access to a previously private site in Poole Harbour. We apologise for the delay of the announcement but we’ve been dealing with a few teething issues. Anyway, we are almost ready to open the site, so keep an eye out on our sightings blog for more info.
