Harbour Update – posted 11/10/14

Quite a bit of birding went on in the harbour today. Starting with Brownsea where you could have been mistaken for being in another country when all 47 Spoonbill and 2 Great White Egret were quite happily feeding/snoozing just left of the Mac Hide, and in one special moment on the webcam we had Spoonbill, Great White Egret, Little Egret and Grey Heron all in one view.  Also on Brownsea 400+ Avocet, 5 Knot, 31 Curlew, 30 Bar-tailed Godwit, 15 Greenshank and a Kingfisher.  At Studland another/the same Yellow-browed Warbler was present, this time down the beach side of the nature trail at Knoll Beach, leading to Littlesea in a Long-tailed Tit flock, also present a few Chiffchaff and a Firecrest. A concentrated effort was made at Lytchett Bay where a Jack Snipe, a late Spotted flycatcher, 2 Firecrest, 2 Barnacle Goose, 2 Rock Pipit, 1 Spotted Redshank and 1 Ruff were all recorded. Up around Soldiers Road/Hartland a Wheatear was still hopping around in search of food, 1 Woodlark in sub-song, 9 Dartford Warbler, 12 Stonechat, 1 Marsh Harrier, 1 Peregrine and 6 Snipe.
