Harbour Update – posted 16/06/14

Having just returned from holiday I was happy to hear that the Great White Egret was seen on a couple of occasions proving its still in the area after a short absence. Sighting from Middlebere and Holmebridge also highlights how far and wide this bird is traveling to feed…unless there is more than one of course? Another highlight came from Lytchett Bay where after a twenty-year absence another Garganey showed up, this time a female making that two in two weeks! Also at Lytchett Bay a strange June record of a drake Pintail, the autumns first Green Sandpiper, also 25 Redshank, 28 Lapwing, 11 Teal and 2 Shoveler. A Lesser Spotted Woodpecker was photographed at Holton Lee, which is a great Poole Harbour record.
