Harbour Update – posted 31/10/17

Today was another fine day, but a large office move prevented us from getting out, but a new BoPH HQ project on the horizon is an exciting project we’ll be telling you about soon! Highlights from today involved 1 Great White Egret, 400+ Avocet, 12 Spotted Redshank, 20+ Greenshank, 1 Little Stint and 8 Spoonbill. In Studland Bay a flock of 14 Black-necked Grebe had congregated and on Shell Bay just a single Sanderling is back so far! In Brands Bay Turnstone, 11 Grey Plover, Pintail and Brent Geese were logged along with the usual species. There were still 2 Ruff on Lytchett Fields, a Hen Harrier was out over Swineham and 2 Merlin were on Hartland. Night recording from our listening station in Old Town Poole produced a steady stream of Redwing, Song Thrush and Blackbird all night along with 26 Fieldfare calls.
