Harbour Update – posted 29/11/22

With things set to get colder, we could see a decent arrival of more winter birds, which could complement the already decent building list of recent arrivals. Yesterdays 7 Goosander were again in Shell Bay this morning and headed into the harbour somewhere. Then, later this afternoon 2 Velvet Scoter joined the Common Scoter flock distantly out in Studland Bay. There were also 7 Black-necked Grebe in Studland Bay. Off Hamworthy Beach there were singles of Red-throated Diver and Great Northern Diver. The 3 Eider were just off the Brownsea SE shore late afternoon and another 2 Great Northern Diver were off Jerry’s Point. At Lytchett Fields highlights included 282 Dunlin, 4 Greenshank, 2 Spotted Redshank and the Grey Plover. Water Pipit ‘1K’ was also seen on Lytchett Fields yesterday.
