Harbour Update – posted 06/08/20

A band of grizzly drizzle welcomed us this AM meaning that pre-planned birding efforts were curtailed and didn’t get going until mid-morning. The drizzle did produce several Sedge Warbler in scrub around Lytchett Fields and there were 16 Greenshank, 1 Little Ringed Plover, 1 Spotted Redshank, 1 Common Snipe, 161 Black-tailed Godwit and an Osprey flew over the bay mid afternoon. There were more Osprey sightings with 1 seen eating a fish near the mouth of the Frome with another high above the Wareham Channel and finally another at Morden Bog again eating fish. There were 2 Hobby over the Piddle Valley and another over Slepe Heath. When the drizzle did stop a small push of Willow Warbler went through with several at Arne, Middlebere and Slepe and Swineham.
