Harbour Update – posted 28/11/16

The cold NE wind persisted making birding conditions tricky but a Spoonbill was seen briefly in Holes Bay SE and there were 8 Great Crested Grebe there too. Bird totals of commoner wader and wildfowl species are on the up with around 20,000 in total now comprising mostly of Wigeon (3805), Teal (3368), Black-tailed Godwit (1703) and Dunlin (1691) according to the last WeBS count. The next is on Dec 11th and we’re hoping for a full count and looking forward seeing whether this cold snap has drawn in (or forced out) many more birds? At Lytchett Pools 2 Woodcock and a Barn Owl were seen just after dark.
