Harbour Update – Posted 11/02/16

We really hit the Jackpot today with sunshine and blue sky. As a result a nice selection of sightings came through. The best being a double owl encounter at RSPB Lytchett Fields when a Short-eared Owl and Barn Owl were flying around together in the approach field to the viewpoints, both real scarcities at this site, also there a Jack Snipe and good numbers of Lapwing, Dunlin, Redshank and 3 Greenshank. The Smew was still in Holes Bay with a Knot (rare here), Common Sandpiper and Turnstone. The Black Guillemot was viewable from the mainland today due to the flat calm water, out off the corner of Brownsea. A Bittern flew across Arne Moors at dusk and 18 Spoonbill were out on Shipstal Point, Arne.
