Harbour Update – posted 09/04/16

Nice to hear Poole Harbour finally get its share of Redstarts with one at the Middlebere Cottages this morning and another up on Ballard. In the Middlebere Channel a summer plumaged Spotted Redshank was feeding with another out in Lytchett Bay. It seemed Blackcap had arrived back on territory in several places such as Holton Lee, Arne and Soldiers Road. The ringtail Hen Harrier is still holding on, refusing to budge and disappear back to a breeding site somewhere else…maybe she’s heard what happens to Hen Harriers when they arrive back to their breeding grounds on Grouse Moors! At Lytchett Fields a stunning summer plumaged Water Pipit was still present, also there a Wheatear was in the Arable Field along Slough Lane and 14 Willow Warbler were present.
