Harbour Update – posted 04/07/20

Pretty grim today, but bad weather often forces down migrating birds, and today highlighted that. The Lytchett Fields Little Ringed Plover flock rose from 4 to 8 which for early July is a good total. Just outside the recording area a group of 10 Common Sandpiper were on Peveril Point, Swanage with another 3 Common Sandpiper on Seymers, Brownsea. Also at Lytchett Fields was the Spotted Redshank, 1 Greenshank, 6 Green Sandpiper, 30+ Redshank, 81 Black-tailed Godwit, 1 Yellow-legged Gull and lots of juv Reed Warbler are beginning to appear. Over in Rempstone Forest a party of 11 Crossbill flew over and at Greensland’s Farm a Red Kite was seen. Female Osprey CJ7 was again seen out over the Wareham Channel in between the poor spells of weather and at Holes Bay a roost of 37 Little Egret were counted. In the PC World Drain, there were 6 Blackcap and 12 Chiffchaff, all mostly juveniles.
