Harbour Update – posted 17/01/22

Wow….a proper chilly one today. So cold it saw a minor cold weather movement of Golden Plover arrive to areas NW of the harbour, including 9 at Wild Woodbury, 2 over Morden Bog and a flock of 25+ north of Morden. Could we see a few enter harbour airspace tomorrow? Many areas were frozen and a very cold looking Cattle Egret was hunkered down on Lytchett Fields where there was also a Spotted Redshank and Spoonbill in the bay. Off Middle Beach, Studland there were 10 Black-necked Grebe and 1 Great Northern Diver and there was a Black-necked Grebe off Jerry’s Point. Off Baiter 2 Sandwich Tern were actively hunting, and there was a Goldeneye off the beach. White-tailed Eagle G801 was still hanging around the Wareham Channel and 4 Marsh Harrier were in and around Swineham.
