Harbour Update – posted 24/11/21

A damp low gloom hung over the harbour for most of the day, but the zero wind helped for open water scouring. The 6 Scaup and 5 Common Scoter were still off Jerry’s Point, there was a Great Northern Diver in the harbour entrance and there were 38 Spoonbill on Shipstal Point. There was a Merlin in Lytchett Bay, a Pochard on Holme Lane GP and 6 Goosander on the Piddle with 3 Woodcock flying out of their roost at Studland. Over Hartland 7 Fieldfare flew over at dawn and in Holes Bay there are now close to 1500 Wigeon with 500+ Black-tailed Godwit, 332 Dunlin, 26 Pintail, 30 Shoveler and a Peregrine.
