Harbour Update – posted 23/01/24

A very blustery and wet day today meaning sightings were limited, but we still managed to brave the conditions and run a successful Low-tide Cruise with some nice sightings along the way. The 1 male Common Scoter was still off the baiter shoreline and numerous Great Northern Diver were still distributed throughout the harbour totalling at least 11 birds. 1 Black-necked Grebe was in South Deep and  6 Spoonbill in Newton Bay and the Wareham Channel. There was plenty of mud in the Wareham Channel meaning a good number of waders were out feeding, including c300 Dunlin, c150 Curlew and a few Grey Plover. The female Greater Scaup was still present as well.

The Waxwing were not seen at Dacombe Drive, Upton today but hopefully more will keep arriving in Dorset soon.
