Harbour Update – posted 11/06/22

This wind is due to die down over the coming days and next week is looking like it could be the first ‘scorcher’ of the year with temperatures reaching 27 degrees. This will be a great Nightjar week as the warm muggy nights will get lots of insects active and really see Nightjar activity increase with intense territorial displays. In Middlebere 3 of the over-summering Spoonbill were feeding in front of the hide and 2 Hobby were over Slepe Heath again. There was Cuckoo calling at Swineham and plenty of Reed Warbler still singing away. We’ve also been getting some nice data regarding an area in teh harbour that has seen the hatching of 7 Lapwing chicks this spring which are all progressing well.
