Harbour Update- posted 13/03/15

Today finally saw some birds of note/interest turn up. The grotty weather obviously forced a few migrants down as the harbours first Wheatears of the spring appeared. There was one, possibly two on Baiter Beach this morning with a female type Black Redstart. Also on Baiter 18 Turnstone, 44 Brent Geese and 3 Red-breasted Merganser still off shore. There were another four Wheatear (3 male and 1 female) on the rough bit of ground next to the Twin Sails Bridge and a Stonechat there. At Holes Bay around 20 Chiffchaff were in the bushes. At Lytchett Bay a male White Wagtail was seen, also another 7 Chiffchaff, two of which were ringed, also 1 Firecrest, 1 Spoonbill, 1 Spotted Redshank, 1 Green Sandpiper and c30 Med Gull. I forgot to report there were 3 Lesser Redpoll at Arne a few days ago…the highest count of anywhere in the harbour this winter!
