Harbour Update – posted 15/05/17

This mornings strong southerly breeze and murky weather seemed perfect for a sea watch so several hours were put in watching Poole Bay from Shore Road. Highlights included 1 Pomarine Skua, 73 Manx Shearwater, 3 Fulmar, 50 Gannet, 2 Great Crested Grebe, 2 Gadwall, 1 Common Scoter, c50 Commic Tern, 2 Med Gull and 4 Swallow. On Lytchett Fields there were 96 Black-tailed Godwit, 1 Bar-tailed Godwit, 1 Ringed Plover and 2 Whimbrel and a Cattle Egret flew out across the bay. Another Cattle Egret was reported flying out into Poole Harbour from the mouth of the Frome. Common Tern numbers on the Brownsea lagoon are building nicely but it seems some of the early nesting Sandwich Terns have already lost their eggs sadly.
