Harbour Update – posted 07/04/15

Another fine spring day Willow Warblers heard at Lytchett Bay and Soldiers Road. Also at Lytchett Bay today an Osprey passed overhead, a Red-legged Partridge was present (very rare here, last record 2008), 1-2 Ruff, 2 Spotted Redshank, 1 Greenshank, 2 Green Sandpiper, c200 Teal, 2 Marsh Harrier and 1 Swallow. A Red Kite drifted over Wareham late afternoon and another was over Canford Heath.

More night recording sessions from my Lytchett Matravers garden over the last few nights has added some nice additions to my garden list including Gadwall, Teal and Snipe, as well as a third Moorhen, a rather disruptive Pheasant and a sleep talking Dunnock.  These recording sessions provide a fascinating insight into what’s going on over our houses when we’re all tucked up in bed. Last night I got another garden tick too…try and see if you can figure out what this is…recorded at 1:30am!
