Harbour Update – posted 25/10/23

The rain soon gave way this morning leaving a really calm day ahead. Off Old Harry this morning a Goshawk, a White-tailed Eagle, 3 Brambling, 112 Swallow, 2 Sand Martin, a mega late Tree Pipit, 6 Chiffchaff and 5 Firecrest. Sunnyside was flooded out and as a result attracted in 1 Greenshank, 1 Black-tailed Godwit, 1 Green Sandpiper and best of all, a Sunnyside tick in the form of a Spotted Redshank. At Holes Bay a Red Kite drifted through and a Wheatear was still along the cycle path. There were at least 3 Ring Ouzel still in the Ulwell Gap and a Spotted Redshank was at Lytchett Fields. There was a minor arrival of Redwing after the rain stopped, but the next few days look like it could deliver more, and by the looks of things further east, we could even have Waxwings by Christmas!
