Today history was made! The first ever Osprey chicks to be ringed in Dorset. Although Osprey bred in Southern England many moons ago, it was way before any ringing schemes had started. We’ve written a full blog post which you can READ HERE , but for readers of this page, the chicks were ringed ‘5H1’ and ‘5H2’, and both were thought to be female, although that view could change a bit later in the season. Below is a short video which highlights the days proceedings, but we just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone thats supported, donated, contributed and helped us to get to this moment. It was an incredibly special day and one that everyone deserves to be a part of.

There were more signs of wader passage with 18 Black-tailed Godwit, 17 Redshank and 5 Little Ringed Plover at Lytchett Fields.
