Harbour Update – posted 30/04/16

Finally some warmth to the weather, which provided some nice coverage from around the harbour and a good range of birds seen. The Osprey still seems to be hanging around as it was seen heading up the Middlebere Channel mid afternoon with a huge flatfish. There were now 4 Little Tern in the Middlebere Channel too late afternoon. Up on Stoborough Heath a Hobby was struggling to find any form of dragonfly life to feed on, also there a Cuckoo, 2 Woodlark and 4 Dartford Warbler. At Lytchett Fields there were 2 Ringed Plover, 12 Dunlin, 3 Greenshank, 1 Lapwing and c50 Black-tailed Godwit with 3 Lesser Whitethroat 1 Willow Warbler and 1 Wheatear. At the PC World Drain 4 Garden Warbler were feeding with 15 Blackcap and 2 Whitethroat. Up on top of Hartland Moor 3 Wheatear and a Whinchat were in the Cattle Fields with 1 Swift and 1 Reed Warbler near by.
