Harbour Update – posted 05/09/16

We’re continuing with our night migration study rom our listening station in Old Town Poole and although recent nights have been quiet due to the SW wind and rain, things perked up a bit in the still wet night last night as a few waders were on the move. Totals between 20:45 and 04:45 included 7 Ringed Plover, 2 Green Sandpiper, 1 Greenshank, 3 Common Sandpiper and 8 Tree Pipit. At Middlebere the 3 Osprey were still on show, constantly moving between the nesting platform and dead trees for most of the day and the 2 Green Sandpiper were on the pool in front of the hide again. At Lytchett Fields there was 1 Wood Sandpiper, 1 Little Stint, 2 Ruff, 1 Knot, 155 Dunlin, 13 Bar-tailed Godwit and 10+ Yellow Wagtail. On the Brownsea Lagoon Curlew Sandpiper, Knot and Spotted Redshank all showed superbly on the webcam whilst 9 Spoonbill stayed at the back of the lagoon.
