Waders, waders, more returning waders! A flock of 27 Bar-tailed Godwit in Newton Bay was a surprise, and there were more arrivals in Holes Bay with 94 Redshank, 47 Curlew and 4 Black-tailed Godwit. At Lytchett Fields there were 16 Redshank and 2 Little Ringed Plover and a Whimbrel was in Ower Bay. An intruder Osprey at the nest site was un-confirmed to be new male ‘374’, but was quite likely to be, considering he was around yesterday. White-tailed Eagle numbers are back down to 2 again with the pair G463 and G466 active in the Wareham Channel and a Marsh Harrier seen migrating up the Piddle Valley and a Spoonbill was in Middlebere this morning.
