Harbour Update – posted 19/03/23

As we’d hoped, an Alpine Swift was reported over Poole Harbour airspace, on the northern edge of Poole Park, near the tennis courts. Several other sightings were still received from just east of us with 1-2 individuals still around the Christchurch Harbour/Bournemouth area, so there’s still a chance one could still be over this way over the coming days. There was still plenty to keep things interesting though with c50 Sand Martin over Swineham GP this evening and 2 Cattle Egret there too. There were also 3 Cattle Egret seen again this morning from the Rock Lea viewpoint, Lytchett Bay. A Merlin and 4 Spoonbill were at Shipstal, Arne this afternoon and 2 White-tailed Eagle flew along the Wareham Channel this evening. At dusk 7 Marsh Harrier went to roost as did 25 Little Egret into the heronry along the Wareham Channel. There was also another small movement of Red Kite with 2 over Middlebere, 1 over Swineham and 2 over Upton.
