There’s apparently a bit of heat relief by the end of the week, well, at least some cloud cover. It feels like it’s been crystal clear blue sky’s for months now! There are plenty of juvenile birds out on the wing now with juvenile Dartford Warblers, Chiffchaff, Blackcap, Woodlarks, Great Spotted Woodpeckers, Stonechats, Dunnock and many more all now fending for themselves. Some species are only just getting into the groove with Spotted Flycatcher seen nest building today and Reed Warbler and  Sedge Warbler still incubating. There were a couple of White-tailed Eagle sightings in the Wareham Channel area today and male Osprey 022 caught a Bass in the mouth of the Frome, off Swineham this evening. At Lytchett Bay a singing Willow Warbler was a notable June record and there were 3 Ringed Plover out on the fields. It was good to hear that a few family parties of Crossbill were seen and heard around Morden Bog today having been a bit thin on the ground earlier in the year.
