It won’t be long now until we start seeing the first returning Willow Warblers, Garden Warblers, Pied Flycatchers and Whitethroats of the autumn with birds beginning to head south from late July and early august onwards. There are already signs of passage with a mixed tit flock at Upton country park this morning containing around 10 Long-tailed Tit, 7+ Chiffchaff, 2 Blackcap as-well as numerous Great and Blue Tit. Waders continue to arrive with 5 Little Ringed Plover, 2 Dunlin, 8 Green Sandpiper and 100+ Black-tailed Godwit at Lytchett Bay. Nightjars were observed at Holton Lee where Tree Pipit have managed to fledge young.  On Brownsea the majority of Sandwich Terns have now fledged with just a handful left feeding young, also some Common Terns are still sitting.
