Harbour Update – posted 28/05/15

Red Kites seemed to be on the move today with several over the county, including one over Upton CP first thing, plus another (more likely the same) over Upton Heath. Lytchett Fields still had 2 female Ruff today along with 109 Black-tailed Godwit, 1 Redshank and good numbers of Shelduck. I was also commenting today on the lack of Swifts over traditional breeding areas such as Old Town Poole, Wareham and Parkstone. It could be that there are still birds yet to arrive but they certainly seem very thin on the ground. I’d be quite keen to hear if anyone within the Poole Harbour area has Swifts prospecting nesting site yet. If so please report your sightings to
