Harbour Update – posted 10/06/16

The low tides around the harbour can seem a bit sparse at present, but look long and hard enough and snippets of interest do appear. Shelduck ducklings are now common-place around the southern shores and quiet bays of the harbour with the parents leading out their young across the mudflats as they keep a wary eye out for hungry Great Black-backed Gulls. There are still a few Black-tailed Godwit are still lingering with a handful in Holes Bay. At Lytchett Fields Teal numbers have started to rise already with 13 present. A Barn Owl was out hunting at Middlebere and a Cuckoo was again near the Middlebere Hide. In the Arne car park the singing Firecrest is still present and learning its song is well worth it as you could easily find your own elsewhere around the harbour as we have recently at 2 previously unknown sites in the north and NW of the harbour.
