Harbour Update – posted 17/12/22

The ground felt solid this morning, but all will change tomorrow when the big low pressure system comes in from the south west. Thankfully the cold will go but wind and rain will set back in and who knows what that may blow into the harbour. It seemed much was seeking sanctuary today with at least 5 Cattle Egret still searching out small mammals and any surviving insects this morning. There was also a Short-eared Owl near Hartland today and 2 Hen Harrier were in Middlebere. 12 Spoonbill were also in Middlebere and off Studland Beach 2 Slavonian Grebe were still in Studland Bay with 9 Black-necked Grebe. the lone Purple Sandpiper was again in front of the Haven Hotel on the sea ledge at low tide but disappeared later in the day. A Pochard was off Baiter, possibly the same that was in Poole Park the day before.
