Harbour Update – posted 19/09/23

Still pretty rough and ready today, but a few birders made it out with 5 Ruff logged on the Stilt Pools at Swineham, with another at Lytchett Fields which was joined by 3 Spotted Redshank, 2 Common Sandpiper, 3 Green Sandpiper, 5 Curlew, 24 Lapwing, 2 Snipe, 11 Greenshank, 43 Dunlin, 161 Redshank and 296 Black-tailed Godwit. A sea watch at Branksome produced not too much with 47 Gannet the best. An Osprey was in Lytchett Bay briefly, the White-tailed Eagles were seen briefly in the Wareham Channel and a sub-adult  male Marsh Harrier was seen in Middlebere, perhaps the one that was released yesterday? On the Brownsea Lagoon there were 64 Spoonbill and 5 Curlew Sandpiper.
