Harbour Update – posted 24/08/17

It started off fine but cooled down by the afternoon. Passerine migration didn’t really pick up too much other than the odd Whinchat or Redstart on Hartland. Whitethroat and Blackcap are increasing in numbers though and as august gives way to September these two species will increase even more. In Middlebere there were 10 Spoonbill, 5 Osprey, 2 Greenshank and 2 Redstart along the access track. Migration through Ballard was slow with just 6 Sedge Warbler, 3 Blackcap, 1 Garden Warbler, 1 Lesser Whitethroat, 6 Whitethroat and 2 Redstart, although 94 House Martin were ringed and 2 British controlled birds were also caught. At Lytchett Bay there were 115 Dunlin, 21 Green Sandpiper, 10+ Yellow Wagtail, 12 Sedge Warbler and 1 Spotted Flycatcher
