Harbour Update – posted 06/09/16

A bit of a quieter day today with 1 Wood Sandpiper, 2 Ruff, 1 Curlew Sandpiper, 70+ Dunlin, 2 Peregrine and a Sparrowhawk at Lytchett Fields. On the southern shoreline of Upton CP a decent count of 1246 Black-tailed Godwit, 10 Bar-tailed Godwit, 2 Knot, 10+ Dunlin, 20+ Redshank, 1 Wigeon and 1 Shoveler. In Middlebere there were still 2-3 Osprey fishing and feeding on and off throughout the day, often using the nesting platform. Our night recording session on the night of the 5th was productive with 18 Tree Pipit, a nice flock of Yellow Wagtail, 4 Robin, the first 2 Song Thrush of the autumn and yet again another Ortolan Bunting.
