Harbour Update – posted 14/02/16

A fairly standard affair with the usual’s still clinging on. Firecrest were still at Norden Sewage Works (2), with another 2 in the Arne car park and one in a garden in Wareham. The Smew was still in Holes Bay south/north. Out on Lytchett Fields there were 2 Avocet, 1 Greenshank, 28 Lapwing, 3 Snipe, 1 Kestrel and 1 Buzzard. 14 Spoonbill were out on Shipstal and a grey male Hen Harrier and 2 ringtail were around the Slepe Heath/Hartland area however one ringtail gained great height (6-700m or so) before it turned into a speck of dust and then vanished! An evacuee saying goodbye? There are still several Marsh Harrier about too around the Wareham Channel area.
