Harbour Update – posted 23/03/23

A rather uninspiring day with most birding taken place gazing out the window! An Osprey through Hampshire a reminder that spring is slowly unravelling, however little to report locally. A Spotted Redshank is still present at Lytchett Bay along with 800+ Black-tailed Godwit. A White-tailed Eagle was also over the Bay airspace and an early Hobby was reported over Ferndown Common. Chiffchaff passage continues, and a metal ringed individual with a pollen horn in the Piddle Valley was a clear sign of spring migration. At Holes Bay, a Sandwich Tern and Common Snipe were the highlights in the SW sector. The super high tide saw salt marshes inundated across the harbour, and Swineham Point was no different enjoying Merlin, 2 Marsh Harrier and vocal Cetti’s Warblers. Late report of 3 House Martin over Brand’s Bay.
