Harbour Update – posted 23/10/23

The high tides in the harbour continued today pushing water and birds up into every bay and inlet. At Lytchett Fields 1 juvenile Little Gull was seen before flying off north-east. Also present were 1 Peregrine, Green Sandpiper, Common Snipe and 1 Marsh Harrier as well as, from Rock Lea View, 1 Spotted Redshank and 5 Greenshank. The high tides brought the male White-tailed Eagle G463 into view where it was seen from the Ham Common Viewpoint around the Gull Islands, then flying over Arne and another White-tailed Eagle probably G466 was seen over Middlebere. In the Middlebere Channel there were 70 Avocet, Spotted Redshank, Knot, Curlew Sandpiper, Pintail, Red-breasted Merganser, 1 Great White Egret and 1 Marsh Harrier. Ring Ouzels were still at Godlingston Hill, feeding in the hawthorn bushes and 1 Peregrine was seen in Poole Town Centre.
