Leave a comment

So the yellow-browed warbler, present since before Christmas, has made it into April. This morning it was calling loudly from the willow carr behind the first line of beach huts at the south end of the Knoll Beach car park
Other bird highlights in March included the long staying surf scoter and ospreys at Brands bay (25th) and Middlebere (28th). On the sea at Studland small numbers of black-necked grebes were present with a slavonian grebe (7th) and a great northern diver (27th). At Middlebere there were 6 spoonbills (21st) and a hen harrier (15th)
