Harbour Update – posted 04/07/17

Today was mostly about Brownsea, which saw the first 2 returning Spotted Redshank of the autumn along with 8 Avocet, 6 Spoonbill, 1 Roseate Tern, 25 Little Egret and a good number of Black-tailed Godwit and 18 Redshank. There were 3 Osprey in the Wareham Channel this evening, one of which was S1 another looked to be a female type but the third couldn’t be sexed, hopefully it will stick around for a few days. At Lytchett Fields there were 6 Little Ringed Plover today with 3 Common Tern fishing out over the fields and in the ditches which seemed unusual for the site. At Arne, a Hobby was out over Shipstal and 2 Bar-tailed Godwit were in Middlebere. As mentioned earlier in the week, there seem to be good numbers of juvenile birds around and there was a report of the first juv Willow Warbler of the autumn heard calling near Wallisdown Road, Poole…and give it a few weeks and there will plenty of gems moving through as  their soft ‘woowheet’ gives away their presence.
