Harbour Update – posted 14/07/22

The heat is getting a bit brutal, but the breeze that picks up around midday certainly helps cool things down. This morning the White-tailed Eagle pair decided to go for a wander with the male G812 heading back north with the female G801 (worryingly) following him. However, she got as far as Blandford and got cold feet and did a u-turn, heading straight back to the harbour. Phew! No doubt he’ll be back soon. In Holes Bay yesterday over 100 Little Egret were roosting in the Pergins Island roost which is a great mid-summer total, with numbers continuing to build during August. Also in Holes Bay this morning were 42 Redshank and 77 Black-tailed Godwit. At Lytchett Fields, there were 2 Common Sandpiper, 4 Green Sandpiper, 5 Little Ringed Plover, 30 Lapwing, 6 Greenshank and 58 Common Redshank. A couple of days ago a young Common Redstart was logged (the first of the season) along with an early Yellow Wagtail over Lytchett Fields yesterday.
