Harbour Update – posted 26/09/16

The long-staying Lesser Yellowlegs remained at Lytchett Fields for its ninth day and was joined by 4 Knot, 1 Curlew Sandpiper, 1 Ringed Plover, c80 Dunlin, 1 Marsh Harrier, 1 Wheatear, 5 Chiffchaff and 2 Blackcap. On the Brownsea Lagoon the Spoonbill total remained at 37 and there were still a handful of Curlew Sandpiper around. At Arne there were 3 Firecrest, 4 Blackcap, and 2 Chiffchaff in the car park. There was also late news of a great Poole Harbour record when a Little Owl was seen along Soldiers Road on Sept 19th. This is likely to be a dispersing juvenile from somewhere, but we have no idea where as Little Owl has been absent from Poole Harbour as a breeding bird for many years.
