Harbour Update – posted 09/04/23

The forecast tomorrow brings the bank holiday good cheer to an end with heavy rain and strong wind bedding in for a couple of days. For that reason we moved our Monday cruise to today instead and managed to log 2 Osprey in the Wareham Channel, 3 Marsh Harrier around the mouth of the Frome, 3 Spoonbill, c20 Avocet, c100 Sandwich Tern, 4 Greenshank, 1 Sanderling, c20 Bar-tailed Godwit and c150 summer plumaged Black-tailed Godwit on the Brownsea Lagoon, c30 Sand Martin and 3 Swallow over Swineham GP , 1 Barnacle Goose and 4 Egyptian Geese on the Stilt Pools at Swineham and out of view from the boat a White-tailed Eagle flew over Middlebere. This morning a Garden Warbler was singing in the PCW drain with 2 Willow Warbler there too. On Hartland there were 4 Wheatear with another on Coombe Heath, RSPB Arne and another along the Turlin Moor shoreline. At Lytchett Fields a Spotted Redshank was still on Sherford Pools. A Red Kite passed over RSPB Arne and another was over Studland Beach.
