Harbour Update -posted 21/01/22

It was so beautiful this morning, that almost every inch of the harbour looked to have been sprinkled with ice dust. Quite literally one of the most scenic days of the winter so far. The high pressure is due to stick around too, so hopefully more beauty days on the way. Watching the open harbour and water bodies was great today with the Black-throated Diver still off Knoll Beach, along with 1 Great Northern Diver, 6 Common Scoter this evening and 21 Black-necked Grebe were in the evening roost. Once again the Glossy Ibis came into Lytchett Bay again this evening, viewable from the Turlin shoreline, and a minimum of 10 Marsh Harrier went into the west harbour roost. Off Redhorn Point there was a Slavonian Grebe, 3 Common Scoter and a Great White Egret flew into Brands Bay. A single Purple Sandpiper was on the 3rd groyne along from the Haven Hotel.
