Harbour Update – posted 30/10/23

It was slim pickings today, despite the decent weather in the end, especially compared to whats forecast later in the week! That said, there were a few nice bits and bobs, including 1 late Northern Wheatear up at Old Harry along with 5 Crossbill, 14 Redpoll, 1 Yellowhammer, lots of Chiffchaff and a few Firecrest up on Ballard. This evening, around the Frome and Piddle river mouths there were 7 Marsh Harrier, 1 Short-eared Owl, 1 Hen Harrier and 1 Merlin. Around Studland it was much of the same with 1 Red-throated Diver off Middle Beach along with 1 Black-necked Grebe and a late Swallow. In Brands Bay there were 42 Great Crested Grebe, 1 Black-necked Grebe, 12 Red-breasted Merganser, 1 Common Scoter and 10 dark-bellied Brent Geese.
