What a day. Bright blue, crystal clear sky’s. Perfect for migration to really get going, so there’s a good opportunity to find a few decent birds over the next few days. Swallows were passing through in small numbers for most of the day, a Sedge Warbler was at Swineham, a Ring Ouzel was along the Middlebere track, there were 2 Little Ringed Plover on Lytchett Fields and there were 3 Spoonbill on the Brownsea Lagoon. Ospreys were logged in almost all areas of the west harbour including Middlebere, Wareham Channel, Lytchett Bay and Shipstal, where one was seen to be having a stand off with a White-tailed Eagle. There was another White-tailed Eagle seen over Sandy Lane late afternoon. Best bird of the day though was a Corn Bunting on the south end of Ballard…an incredibly rare Poole Harbour bird.
