Harbour Update – posted 19/12/22

Not quite what we were hoping Christmas week would start like with howling winds and driving rain, but at least it’s warmer! Not many birders out today, but 7 Goldeneye on Poole Park boating lake was noteworthy which consisted of 6 males and 1 female. In Middlebere there were 12 Spoonbill at the top end of the channel and out on Baiter 1 Dunlin, 1 Grey Plover, 1 Greenshank, 4 Black-tailed Godwit, 1 Common Snipe, 12 Turnstone and 150+ dark-bellied Brent Geese were hunkering down. A Great Northern Diver was also off Baiter Beach and in the Wareham Channel a White-tailed Eagle was seen briefly heading across the Wareham Channel.
