Harbour Update – posted 30/04/21

Poole Towns good run continued today with a Nightingale found at Luscombe Valley by Nick Mudge. It sang on and off early to mid-morning but then went quiet. It just highlights the value of these migration corridors through the town as there was also Willow Warbler, Whitethroat, Blackcap and Chiffchaff also there. At Swineham after the rain stopped a decent number of Sedge Warbler were along the gravel pit footpath with 6+ singing plus at the far end there was a Garden Warbler, Whitethroat, Reed Warbler, Sedge Warbler and Blackcap all feeding in one bush, suggesting they’d literally just arrived. Plus, one of the Ring-necked Ducks was back on the main GP and a Cuckoo was there too. There were also 10+ Swift, 100+ Sand Martin and 50+ Swallow with 1 Common Sandpiper, 1 Little Ringed Plover and 2 Egyptian Geese on the scrapes and 9 Whimbrel overhead.
