Harbour Update – posted 26/01/23

Another magic morning exploring the harbour with our School Bird Boat Project. A trip to remember with today’s class enjoying stunning views of a White-tailed Eagle flying over the Arne Peninsula! Other highlights from the trip included a Pochard flying east from the Wareham Channel into the Central Harbour, 3 Black-necked Grebe in Arne Bay and stunning views of Avocet and Dark-bellied Brent Goose flocks several hundred strong. Elsewhere, a Velvet Scoter was still present from Jerry’s Point plus 5 Black-necked Grebe and a single Great Northern Diver. South Haven featured 3 Redpoll and a single Slavonian Grebe was again from Pilots Point, Studland. Holes Bay featured over 2,000 Black-tailed Godwit today, as well as 3 Spoonbill and 188 Avocet. Meanwhile at least six Woodlarks occupied the the ARC reserve on Holme Lane.
