Harbour Update – posted 14/11/22

Nice and still this morning, more autumnal than the recent mild days. A few birds were moving with small parties of Redwing and Fieldfare over Hartland at dawn. There seems to have been a Marsh Harrier clear out with 24 on Saturday down to only 13 this morning out of the west harbour roost. Also a White-tailed Eagle was moving around the Wareham Channel just after sunrise and a Merlin was out on Slepe Heath. Off Middle Beach, Studland there were 5 Black-necked Grebe and 1 Red-throated Diver and at Shell Bay, the Snow Bunting was still feeding along the beach. At Lytchett Fields there were 2 Water Pipit (1 ringed and 1 un-ringed) and 1 Curlew Sandpiper along with 1 Spotted Redshank and a ringtail Hen Harrier flew past the Lytchett Bay ‘Rock Lea’ viewpoint. The Wood Duck (of unknown origin) was still at Creekmoor Ponds.
