Harbour Update – posted 15/01/20

Our School Bird Boat today capitalised on the recent stormy weather, picking up 15 Great Northern Diver mostly around the harbour mouth, Brands Bay, South Deep area. The trip didn’t visit any of the northern shoreline or Wareham Channel which often holds several more, so it is possible that 20+ individuals could currently be in the harbour at the moment. Let’s see how many Divers we can pick up off Baiter on our urban guided walk (leaving BoPH HQ at 10am tomorrow).

Lytchett Fields continued to hold 2 Water Pipit and 1 Rock Pipit in front of French’s Pool Viewpoint, along with 2 Green Sandpiper, 2 Greenshank. 1 Spotted Redshank and 23 Dunlin. The Wareham Common Siberian Chiffchaff was still at base of Northwest Walls in ditch by River Piddle. A total of 5 Goldeneye and a Red-breasted Merganser on Poole Park Lake while a very wet Sunnyside Scrape produced Gadwall new in. The Morden Bog Great Grey Shrike was again observed west of Decoy Pond this morning.
