Harbour Update – posted 15/04/16

Although the grim wet weather put most birding attempts to bed for most of the day, after it cleared around 3pm migrants were turning up left right and centre, hoping to grab a quick snack before moving on. The waste ground next to the Twin Sails Bridge saw 15+ Wheatear and a Whitethroat feeding on the short- cropped grass. At the PC World Drain a Sedge Warbler, 5 Whitethroat, 10 Blackcap and several Willow Warbler. At Lytchett Fields 4 Yellow Wagtail, 2 Wheatear, 1 Whitethroat, 2 Blackcap, 50+ Swallow, 2 Reed Warbler and 3 Greenshank were present. At Middlebere 42 summer plumaged Dunlin were out from the hide, also 1 sub-adult female Marsh Harrier and 200+ Black-tailed Godwit. A Whinchat and Cuckoo were on Canford Heath.
