Harbour Update – posted 12/02/2020

With spring just around the corner, we’ve started to see Red Kite, with 1 seen over Holes Bay heading towards Lytchett Bay today, and later one 2 seen in Lytchett Bay. They are only a passage migrant here in the harbour, peaking in numbers in late April/early May. The 4 Scaup (1 male, 3 females) are still present in Holes Bay. From the bird boat, the highlight was 2 Great Northern Diver in the North Channel of the Harbour. Jerry’s Point was fruitful again today, with 2 Long-tailed Duck, 2 Great Northern Diver, 1 Slavonian Grebe and 2 Black-necked Grebe and another sighting of the Black-throated Diver this afternoon.

The council have been contacted about a fallen tree on Slough Lane – there is currently no access to Lytchett Fields via this route.
