Harbour Update – posted 17/03/17

This is what we love about the spring, any day has the potential to produce ‘a first’ for the year and today we saw another two arrive with the first Swallow dashing through Lytchett Fields and the first Willow Warbler was on the edge of Upton CP. A ringing session in the Lower Frome Valley produced 1 new Jack Snipe ringed and 6 seen at still 1 Woodcock seen with c20 Common Snipe. Wheatear were on Slepe Heath and Hartland, in Middlebere there were 4 Spotted Redshank, a ringtail Hen Harrier was out over the reeds in the mouth of the Frome and Chiffchaff were still heard in good numbers. At Lytchett Fields the Green-winged Teal was still on Sherford Pools and 6 Spoonbill were on Shipstal Point, Arne. And finally the female Scaup was again seen on the main Poole Park boating lake.
