Harbour Update – posted 26/09/23

Things are pretty samey at the moment. Maybe tomorrows stronger winds that are forecast for later in the day will deliver an American warbler or two. Unlikely, but at least the current range of birds are decent enough for the interest to remain daily. There were 3 Curlew Sandpiper on Lytchett Fields today along with 1 Ruff, 3 Spotted Redshank, 14 Greenshank, 5 Green Sandpiper and 1 Common Sandpiper. A few Ospreys are still clinging on with fish catches in Middlebere, Brands Bay, Lytchett Bay and Wareham Channel. The Brownsea Lagoon had c50 Spoonbill, the 2 White-tailed Eagles were in the Wareham Channel briefly, there were 2 Wheatear along the Holes Bay cycle path, the male looking to be a Greenland race and 3 Marsh Harrier were at Swineham. The Forster’s Tern was also still hanging out at Shipstal, Arne.
