Harbour Update – posted 25/01/24

With the newly arrived mild weather, more and more birds are beginning to strengthen their voice, building up for the up and coming breeding season. In the PCW Drain this morning there were c18 Chiffchaff, two of which were almost belting out a full song…..and it’s only January. Song Thrush and Great Tit were also joining in, and there was even a drumming Great Spotted Woodpecker at Arne this morning. Best bird of the day though was an adult Little Gull, found in Lytchett Bay this evening. The Black-throated Diver was in Holes Bay south again, and was also clocked entering the harbour entrance this morning. A White-tailed Eagle was in the Wareham Channel, as were 4 Marsh Harrier. On Wareham Common this evening there were 20 Cattle Egret with a decent flock of c300 Redwing and there was a single Great White Egret at Swineham where 3 Pochard were still present.
