Harbour Update – posted 14/03/15

Red Kites seemed to be on the move today with several reported. One was seen heading east over Holes Bay mid morning and another was over Poole mid afternoon and another two were seen cruising north just outside the harbour in Wareham Forest. At Lytchett Bay today there were 3 Spoonbill, 2 Greenshank, 1 Spotted Redshank, 3 Stonechat and 3 Chiffchaff. There was perhaps evidence of some Fieldfare passage with a few flocks of 50+ birds seen heading purposefully north at Sunnyside Farm and Wareham Forest. On Slepe Heath there was a ringtail Hen Harrier, 4 Stonechat, 2 Dartford Warbler and 1 Woodlark. From the Studland area there was 3 Redwing, 8 Fieldfare, 2 Wheatear and 1 Firecrest at Greenlands Farm, 546 Teal, 116 Pintail, 1 Spoonbill, 399 Black-tailed Godwit, 1 Greenshank, 8 Knot and 7 Turnstone in Brands Bay, 5 Black-necked Grebe off Middle Beach and Holes Bay had 1 Common Sandpiper.
