Today, the what seems to now be a semi resident Osprey kept up the intrigue by hanging around the Arne area before alighting on the Middlebere nesting platform again late afternoon. On Lytchett Fields the 3 Spoonbill were present again having been on Brownsea earlier, with 1 Grey Plover, 2 Dunlin, Black-tailed Godwit, Redshank, Gadwall, 5 Lapwing and 4 Ringed Plover also on Lytchett Fields. Another Nightjar ringing session in the Canford Heath area produced another new bird ringed. We also received news back from Doc Martin Collinson of a tristis type Chiffchaff caught and ringed at Fleets Corner back on Jan 27th 2017 confirming via DNA analysis that it was indeed a Siberian Chiffchaff which wasn’t surprising considering it called repeatedly like one and was also as pale as dish water.
