Superb spring migrant counts coming in from Swineham again today thanks to Peter Moore… 76 singing Reed Warbler and 18 Sedge Warbler, Common Sandpiper (Redcliff slipway), Little Ringed Plover (Stilt Pool) and 9 Whimbrel (8 over the main pit, 1 in N Bestwall paddocks). An impressive 41 singing Cetti’s Warbler, 9 each of Blackcap and Chiffchaff, 3 Willow Warbler and 3 Whitethroat. A Hoopoe was in a private garden at Studland and other notables included 5 Wheatear on Stoborough Heath and a Chiffchaff collecting nest material at Lytchett Bay SANG. An Osprey was reported over the River Piddle at 2:30, likely CJ7.
