A nice mixture of birds today with what was the springs first ‘proper’ fall of migrants. An Osprey drifted over the Arne car park late afternoon, and 2 Spoonbill were in Middlebere. At Lytchett Fields there were 2 (possibly 3) Little Ringed Plover, 1 Greenshank, 1 Spotted Redshank, 5 Gadwall, 1 Marsh Harrier, 1 singing Blackcap and still around 200 Teal. At Studland there were 11 Wheatear at Greenlands and 4 at South Haven, 5 Swallow through north and 2 Willow Warbler. Up on Old Harry there was 10 Wheatear, 7 Willow Warbler, 1 Blackcap, 10 Swallow, 3 Sand Martin, 1 House Martin and a Red Kite.
