Harbour Update – posted 30/09/16

Today a school bird boat took place and a Great White Egret was seen feeding on the shoreline of Long Island and another (or the same) was later seen feeding on Lytchett Fields briefly before heading off to Rockley Park direction. The Lesser Yellowlegs was still on Lytchett Fields where the high tide count also produced 1 Knot, 1 Ringed Plover, c50 Snipe, 3 Curlew Sandpiper, 1 Little Stint and a good count of Redshank, Dunlin, Greenshank, Teal and Wigeon. Some passerine passage was also evident with 1 Woodlark, 1 Skylark, 1 Firecrest, 1 Treecreeper, 3 Goldcrest, 7 Chiffchaff and 30 Meadow Pipit over around Lytchett Fields too with Marsh Harrier, Sparrowhawk and Kestrel all passing through. Around the Hartland Moor, Soldiers Road area there were 11 Wheatear, 1 Whinchat, 2 Blackcap and a Woodlark.
