Harbour Update – posted 16/10/20

Lytchett Bay’s first Brent Geese of the season were logged today.  A total of 7 were recorded in the entranced channel. The Bay also held a minimum count of 245 Wigeon. A Yellow-browed Warbler was kicking around Cold Harbour. 3o Spoonbill were observed on our Brownsea Lagoon webcam, numbers are certainly increasing with birds venturing across more of the harbour. Elsewhere a further 33 Brent Geese occupied Shipstal Point, Arne and an additional 4 Brent’s were seen on the reserve from Coombe viewpoint. Two large mixed flocks of Lapwing & Starling in flight, as well as  Avocet, Black-tailed Godwit, Teal, Wigeon, Pintail and Marsh Harrier all recorded from the new Lookout. Visible migration was fantastic at both South Haven and Glebelands with South Haven seeing 347 Lesser Redpoll and 152 at Glebelands and equally impressive numbers of Crossbill 103 at Glebelands.
