Harbour Update – posted 30/04/24

Still feeling cold in the harbour as we reach the end of April but still plenty of birds arriving. Lots of Spring migrants singing at Morden Bog for our ID course this morning with 6 Woodlark, 4 Tree Pipit, 1 Cuckoo, 1 Hobby as well as 1 Peregrine and 3 Crossbill. At Swineham there were impressively now 3 Wood Sandpiper as well as the 1 Bonaparte’s Gull and 1 Little Gull  in the lower Piddle Valley. There were also 2 Spotted Redshank, 3 Greenshank, c50 Black-tailed Godwit and 1 Marsh Harrier. Good numbers of Whimbrel are still passing through the harbour with sightings in Holes Bay and the field across the road from the Sunnyside car park today. 1 Red Kite flew over Lytchett Fields and 1 was over Upton Country Park.
