Harbour Update – posted 28/03/14

There were a few minor snippets of news from the last couple of days including a small fall of Wheatear around the harbour shorelines this morning with 8 at Baiter, 4 Hamworthy Park, 1 at Holes Bay and 1 in Poole Park. Out in Studland Bay a few more Sandwich Tern arrived and a Great Northern Diver was still present. The Surf Scoter was out in Brands Bay again and 12 Fieldfare were up on Hartland Moor. On Pilots Point, Studland 16 Sanderling were feeding before dark last night and a summer plumaged Black-necked Grebe was out on the water as 10 Red-breasted Merganser flew out of the harbour. Over Swineham 2 Marsh Harrier were still very active near the nest site again which is looking promising for a repeat performance this year. Finally, at the beginning of the week I promised that the Barn Owl cam would be up and running on the site by the end of today. However, unfortunately due to illness our web developer hasn’t been at work all week but has said he’ll look to get it up and running for Monday. We’re really sorry for the wait, please bare with us just a couple more days. Thank-you.
