Harbour Update – posted 10/07/21

The pretty uninspiring morning seems to have deterred many from getting out into the field this morning. The wet front moving through by midday, making way for beautifully still conditions for our final Puffin Cruise of the year later this evening. An evening vigil on the edge of the Wareham Channel last night produced 2 Greenshank fresh in high over calling heading south, c.60 Black-tailed Godwit, 1 Marsh Harrier and 1 Hobby, as well as 4+ Nightjar active on Slepe Heath. Today saw 11 species of waders logged at Lytchett Fields, with 2 Oystercatcher, 27 Lapwing, 5 Little Ringed Plover, 2 Whimbrel, 2 Curlew, 5 Black-tailed Godwit, 1 Dunlin, 3 Common Sandpiper, 2 Green Sandpiper, Greenshank and 48 Redshank. A female Marsh Harrier, Kestrel, Kingfisher, 2 Buzzard, singing Firecrest, 9 Teal and 7 Gadwall all added extra variety to the visit.
