Harbour Update – posted 15/05/16

With the wind swinging round to the north, and putting a slightly uncomfortable chill in the air today bird news was fairly limited. A dedicated count at Swineham carried out by local birder and photographer Peter Moore returned some good counts with 20 Cetti’s Warbler, 53 Reed Warbler, 3 Sedge Warbler (rare breeders in the harbour), 5 Blackcap, 3 Chiffchaff and 2 Skylark, 2 Cuckoo, 1 Marsh Harrier and a Little Ringed Plover on a pool along the River Frome walk. Lytchett Fields today could only muster 5 Ringed Plover and 3 Dunlin along with 1 Greenshank and 80+ Black-tailed Godwit
