Harbour Update – posted 05/09/23

The heat wave presses on, and as a result very few birds are ‘grounding’ currently, with many seemingly pushing on right through. The main migrating species today was Swallow, with many thousands on the move, and a constant flow overhead. Ospreys were still well represented with 2-3 in the Lytchett Bay area and 2-3 seen in the Wareham Channel during the morning. Also at Lytchett Fields were 2 Whinchat, 3 Yellow Wagtail and 100+ strong flock of Cormorant. In Brands Bay a Ruff settled briefly along with 14 Bar-tailed Godwit and 1 Knot. There were 3 Redstart at Greenlands Farm, 10+ Yellow Wagtail on Hartland and at Swineham a Ruff was on the Stilt Pool.
