Harbour Update – posted 27/10/16

Today saw a nice variety of species including a late Whinchat at Sunnyside Farm and a handsome male Merlin. At Lytchett Fields the Lesser Yellowlegs was still present and a redhead Goosander dropped into Lytchett Bay very briefly late afternoon before heading up the Sherford River. Also at Lytchett Bay 1 Firecrest, 1 Curlew Sandpiper and 1 Green Sandpiper. The Great White Egret was in Middlebere for most of the day. On the Brownsea Lagoon up to 24 Spoonbill were present and could be viewed on our Live Webcam for most of the day. There were other Firecrests at Middle Beach, Studland (1), Arne (3) and Holton Lee (1). A Black Redstart was on the farm buildings at Arne too. In Studland Bay 7 Black-necked Grebe were feeding with a single Red-breasted Merganser. At Middlebere there was a single Marsh Harrier and a decent sized flock of c200 Fieldfare heading west.
