Harbour Update – posted 16/01/14

Quite quiet on the bird front these last few days. The only new and significant sighting was of a Great White Egret on the 14th seen flying east down the Wareham Channel towards Arne. There was a recent report of a Barn Owl at Swineham, which means our new Barn Owl boxes could already be occupied, we’ll be going down to check them soon. The Scaup is still present in Poole Park. 8 Marsh Harrier and 3 Hen Harrier continue to frequent between the Wareham Channel and Middlebere. The Yellow-browed Warbler is still present at Knoll Beach. From Middle Beach 3 Med Gull, 4 Common Scoter and 1 Black-necked Grebe were seen. The Smew was again out at Lytchett Bay and 3 Greylag Geese on Shell Beach was a strange record.
