A fresh juv Ruff at Lytchett Fields was new in which was feeding along side 5 Ringed Plover, 11 Dunlin, 7 Green Sandpiper and 2 Common Sandpiper whilst passerine migrants included 1 Whitethroat and 5 Willow Warbler. In Holes Bay north a big flock of mixed Willow Warbler and Chiffchaff moved through the scrub and out on the mud 2 Common Sandpiper were near the bridge, 200+ Black-tailed Godwit were again feeding in the center of the bay and 3 Yellow-legged Gull were on the mud. There were 2 Spoonbill on the Brownsea Lagoon with 4 also reported at Shipstal Point, Arne.  Night recording was a dead loss with absolutely nothing passing over all night other than just a few distant Oystercatcher.
