Lytchett Bay was stealing all the action today with multiple sightings of Osprey, 1 White-tailed Eagle, and at least one each of Red Kite, Peregrine and Marsh Harrier all seen from Rock Lea View, the latter of which flushed a Ringed Plover from the main bay. The fields were busy too with 109 Black-tailed Godwit, 30 Redshank, 3 Greenshank, 1 Green Sandpiper, plus Little Ringed Plover and Spotted Redshank both present once again, and the first 3 Whimbrel of the year on French’s Pool. Elsewhere 1 drake Pintail was still in Holes Bay, and a Hobby – probably newly arrived – was seen high over East Morden heading towards Wareham Forest. The Garganey was still on the Stilt Pools at Swineham.
