Harbour Update – posted 16/04/24

Still pretty windy, and from the NW too, which seems to have knocked last weeks decent migration on the head. At least much of the wind is due to die off over the next few days, and all being well things will pick up again. There was late news of a Grasshopper Warbler at Wareham Rugby Club on Sunday morning, there was a Lesser Whitethroat at Middlebere yesterday evening. The Forster’s Tern was on Brownsea this morning, there were 3 Spotted Redshank¬†and 5 passage Ringed Plover at Lytchett Fields and a couple of Reed Warbler back in Holes Bay north, with 1 Whimbrel and a Red Kite there too. A Little Gull was on the Bestwall floods this afternoon. Female White-tailed Eagle G801 was still hanging around in the Wareham Channel and female G466 weirdly didn’t seem to mind?!
