Harbour Update – posted 13/04/21

There was still a couple of reminders that winter wasn’t that long ago with a single Fieldfare logged at Holton Lee when paying a visit to their offices and a single dark-bellied Brent Goose was still out in the Wareham Channel. There was a decent fall of Willow Warblers around the harbour with several in the PCW Drain, 3 at Greenlands Farm, 2 along Soldiers Road and 2 at Coombe Heath, Arne. There were also 10 Wheatear at Sunnyside Farm and out in the Wareham Channel the young Peregrine was once again out there causing mayhem, this time in partnership with a Marsh Harrier that perused close behind the fleeing Black-tailed Godwits and Black-headed Gulls. At Morden Bog the first Tree Pipit was back on territory and a Cuckoo was calling there too. Whimbrel were heard calling at Swineham and Lytchett Fields with 2 seen on the ground there too. There were also 7 Little Ringed Plover at Lytchett Fields and an Osprey (not CJ7) was also seen over the fields carrying a fish.
