Harbour Update – posted 26/01/15

The Smew was again in Holes Bay today, this time just south of the railway bridge next to the Holes Bay dual carriage way. It was feeding with 2 Goldeneye on the low tide and was constricted to the narrow, shallow channel, which made it easy to find.

Whilst watching the Smew I was also treated to a whole host of other species including a Spoonbill near the outflow, 40+ Avocet, Curlew, Redshank, Dunlin, Oystercatcher, Teal, Wigeon, Shelduck, Gadwall, Little Egret, Red-breasted Merganser, Brent Goose, Cormorant and Mute Swan…it really is a great urban birding spot.
