Harbour Update – posted 12/02/15

Still not much change in the harbour at present. The Spoonbill, Spotted Redshank and Common Sandpiper are all still taking it easy by the PC World outflow. Black-necked Grebes can still be found off the house boats in Bramble Bush Bay, plus a few still in Shell Bay and a 7 more off Middle Beach with a Slavonian Grebe, 1 Common Scoter and 200 Brent Geese at the latter site.  A Bearded Tit was at Hatch Pond briefly with 30+ Snipe. There are still 3 Purple Sandpiper at North Haven, Sandbanks and a Sandwich Tern was at Baiter. The ‘pools field’ at Lytchett Bay held a Greenshank and out in the bay 334 Avocet and 262 Black-tailed Godwit were feeding.

Also available is the new Lytchett Bay 2014 report, written by Shaun Robson. Certain areas of Lytchett Bay have seen big changes over the last year in terms of land ownership and habitat transition. Shaun talks about these topics in detail within the report including information on a new small area of access that we have been liaising with the RSPB to open. 2014 was also a record breaking year for Lytchett Bay in so many ways and the report is full of great photos and data highlighting the rise and fall in bird numbers at this ever changing site. 

Shaun has been writing reports at Lytchett Bay since 1992 and you can read those also by clicking on the below link.
