Harbour Update – posted 02/09/15

The super high tides this week have put a bit of a dampener on RSPB Lytchett Fields (no pun intended) by flooding the site and moving many of the birds on. However, the site is still holding 2 Wood Sandpiper, 1 Common Sandpiper, 2 Ruff, 20 Dunlin and the usual Lapwing, Redshank, Black-tailed Godwit etc. Migrant wise, its seems to be doing much better with 30+ Willow Warbler, 5 Spotted Flycatcher, 6 Whitethroat, 1 Lesser Whitethroat and 10+ Chiffchaff. At South Haven there were 11 Sanderling, 2 Ringed Plover, 1 Knot, 1 Wheatear and 1 Garden Warbler. In Brands Bay 200+ Black-tailed Godwit were counted before the long staying juvenile Osprey put them up, also 4 Pintail, 2 Wigeon, and 2 Yellow Wagtail. At Greenland Farm there were 4 Wheatear, 1 Whinchat, 7 Yellow Wagtail, 8 Spotted Flycatcher, 1 Pied Flycatcher, 1 Garden Warbler, 4 Whitethroat ad 12 Willow Warbler. Middlebere saw 1 distant Osprey, 2 Lesser Whitethroat, 1 Marsh Harrier and 4 Wigeon. Also a Lanner Falcon wearing jesses was harassing birds in the Middlebere Channel late evening!
