Another quite blustery day out in the harbour today but lots of nice birds around nonetheless with 5 Marsh Harrier soaring around Swineham and Keysworth shorelines from our school bird boat this morning. The juv/female Common Scoter is still sticking around in Lytchett bay having been present for over a week now. 10 Spoonbill also dropped into Lytchett Bay this afternoon. Numbers of Wigeon are building up really strongly in the harbour with 1055 logged in Holes Bay today as well as 333 Teal, 26 Pintail, 1035 Black-tailed Godwit, 43 Avocet, Spotted Redshank and 13 Common Snipe. 

Brands Bay on the rising tide this afternoon had 2 Great Northern Diver, Black-necked Grebe, Common Scoter, 15 Red-breasted Merganser, 154 Pintail, Bar-tailed Godwit and 19 Knot. The Snow Bunting was still present in the sand dunes at Studland today and 1 White-tailed Eagle was seen flying over Morden this afternoon.
