Harbour Update – posted 27/07/23

Good news for anyone looking to connect with the Forster’s Tern, it seems to be spending time on the salt marsh around Shipstal Beach RSPB Arne in between feeds. It also seems to be feeding in the channel off Shipstal Beach, so some time spent in that area could pay off. Please don’t go beyond the rope barrier at the end of Shipstal Beach that leads onto the salt marsh. There was also another Pied Flycatcher, this time at South Haven, Studland along with a passage Garden Warbler. At Lytchett Fields there was 1 Bar-tailed Godwit, 39 Black-tailed Godwit, 71 Redshank, 24 Dunlin, 4 Greenshank, 4 Whimbrel, 4 Green Sandpiper and 2 Curlew.¬†In Middlebere there were 7 Spoonbill¬†with 1 Knot, 11 Bar-tailed Godwit and c50 Black-tailed Godwit.¬†The 2 over-summering Eider were off Pilots Point, Studland and the Barnacle Goose and a Common Sandpiper were still at Holme Lane GP.
