Lytchett Fields played host to 4 adult Little Ringed Plover today, asking the question…where do they keep coming from? This has been by far the best ever spring for this species at this site. Have they bred locally? on site? or do the adults just see Lytchett Fields as an excellent vacation location which is why birds keep popping up out of nowhere. Also on Lytchett Fields an increase of 12 Redshank, including two mating birds and (filmed by Ian Ballam WATCH HERE) It was busy with the regular species on the Brownsea Lagoon too with many Sandwich Tern chicks now hatched along with plenty of Black-headed Gull chicks too. There doesn’t seem to be any Common Tern chicks just yet, but it’s just a matter of time. Also on the lagoon were 3 Ringed Plover, 1 Avocet, 50+ Black-tailed Godwit, several newly hatched Oystercatchers, 5 Med Gulls and 2 broods of newly hatched Shelduck
