Harbour Update – posted 16/10/23

The forecast was gearing up to possibly provide some more decent visible migration this morning, although the forecast light NE breeze soon turned into a very strong easterly wind meaning the vis-mig that did get going soon faded away. There was some passage though and up on Ballard and at South Haven some moderate returns were had. Up on Ballard there were 936 Siskin, 658 Goldfinch, 535 Linnet, 29 Lesser Redpoll, 92 Swallow, 1 Brambling and a Reed Bunting. Also seen up there were 2 Firecrest, 1 Merlin and 2 Ring Ouzel. At the harbour mouth at South Haven there was another Ring Ouzel, plus 5 Redwing, 11 Song Thrush, 363 Siskin, 104 Goldfinch, 95 Linnet, 92 Lesser Redpoll, 34 Meadow Pipit, 20 Swallow and 3 Reed Bunting. A Hen Harrier and Short-eared Owl were seen at Swineham and at Lytchett Fields this morning a Spotted Redshank was on the fields and a Cattle Egret flew over Lytchett Bay View.
