Autumn creeps on – posted 13/09/13

Still, migrants are working their way through the harbour. At Arne, Spotted Flycatcher, Redstart, Garden Warbler, Tree Pipit and Yellow Wagtail have all been reported in the last couple of days. In Middlebere 7 Spoonbill have been a frequent sight, as has at least 1 Osprey. Other birds of note in Middlebere have  included Pintail, Green Sandpiper, Ringed Plover and a small build up of Teal and the odd Wigeon. On Brownsea at least 6 Spotted Redshank remain with 100+ Avocet, 300+ Black-tailed Godwit, 4 Knot, 3 Turnstone, 200+ Dunlin and good numbers of returning Duck including Shoveler, Teal, Tufted Duck. At Lytchett Bay Spotted Flycatcher, Tree Pipit and Lesser Whitethroat were notable passerines with 3 Curlew Sandpiper, 1 Little Stint, 4 Ringed Plover and a Spotted Redshank all present. Chiffchaff numbers are on the rise with the peak movement about to occur over the next few weeks, which is the same for Blackcap, so keep your eyes peeled in your gardens as they, along with other migrants can be seen foraging for berries and insects.
