Harbour Update – posted 14/03/24

No sign of any Ospreys today, despite some searching but still plenty to report including a total of 12 Great Northern Diver still spread across the harbour, mainly in the central and eastern reaches of the harbour with 4 Black-necked Grebe in South Deep and 1 Slavonian Grebe off Redhorn Point. In the Wareham Channel there were 4 Marsh Harrier, a Goshawk was hunting over Hydes Heath, Buzzard were displaying everywhere during the brief period of sun late morning which also prompted 5 Red Kite to cruise over Keysworth towards Swineham and Wareham. Both Peregrines were on the Asda building again, the Goosander was in Holes Bay NE and on Wareham Common 32 Cattle Egret were huddled together just north of the railway. There was a pair of Mandarin Duck in a tree on the edge of Carey Secret Garden and a Little Gull was off Rock Lea view in Lytchett Bay. On the Brownsea Lagoon 4 Spoonbill flew in, there were still good numbers of Dunlin with about c400 present, also c30 Med Gulls, 5 Greenshank and c50 Bar-tailed Godwit. At Sandbanks, 3 Sandwich Tern were on the Parkstone Yacht Club jetty.
