Harbour Update – posted 26/03/20

Another gorgeous day, and thanks to everyone who supplied sightings from their ‘health’ walks today. Along Soldiers Road there were 6 Fieldfare with another 5 on the edge of Slepe Heath. A Red Kite flew over central Upton with another over Studland and amazingly 5 over Baiter just after mid-day. It seems everyone is getting familiar with their local Buzzards with numerous photos appearing on social media as they fly over peoples gardens. Today, we even began photographing different individuals that flew over to see if we could work out exactly how many regular ‘locals’ there are and how many just pass on by…..good fun….if at home all day! Blackcap are definitely beginning to arrive and move on to their territories with birds singing at Holmebridge, Slepe Copse and Upton CP and there’s certainly no shortage of Chiffchaff.

Today, we’d like to play a sound that we recorded around this time last spring which is a typical mid March. This was recorded on the edge of Slepe Heath and was our first Chiffchaff of the spring that year as a Great Spotted Woodpecker drummed in the distance.
