Harbour Update – posted 22/08/17

A dark, dank, misty murky morning welcomed us this morning and it didn’t budge until around 11am, and with a stiff easterly wind it forced a Great Skua into Poole Bay which seemed lost in the fog, until it then cleared and the bird then headed out back south again, along with 9 Common Scoter. Ringing totals near Ballard included just 9 Willow Warbler, 6 Blackcap, 6 Whitethroat and a Redstart. On Brownsea there was still 1 Little Stint and in Middlebere 5 Osprey and 9 Spoonbill were present. Night migration over our listening station in Old Town Poole was pretty slow too with just 3 Tree Pipit, 6 Robin, 3 Common Sandpiper and 1 Ringed Plover.
