The Bar-headed Goose remains at Poole Park and despite its origin has attracted a small inquisitive number of people wanting to see one in Dorset! On the Brownsea Lagoon 3 Spotted Redshank, 2 Greenshank, 2 Bar-tailed Godwit, 135 Black-tailed Godwit and 1 Brent Goose were present. At Lytchett Bay there were 3 Little Ringed Plover, 2 Spotted Redshank, 5 Greenshank, 17 Lapwing, 1 Black-tailed Godwit, 1 Snipe and 16 Teal. It seems both Dartford Warbler and Woodlark have had good breeding seasons with double figure counts of the former and high single figure counts of the latter on many of the Poole Harbour heathlands. Hobby have been confirmed nesting at an undisclosed site and Spoonbills have been moving between Brownsea and Middlebere.
