Harbour Update – posted 12/09/22

It’s still feeling really magic at the moment, with perfect autumn conditions. Ospreys were still present with the Holes Bay juvenile seen catching a fish, plus another 1 in Brands Bay, 1 over the Wareham Channel and 1 seen high heading south over Wareham Train station. But most amazingly of all, one was seen catching a fish out on Lytchett Fields, a scene that would have been impossible to predict ten years ago when the fields were just a dry set of fields. Also at Lytchett Fields were 6 Curlew Sandpiper, 2 Spotted Redshank, 50 Dunlin, 1 Cattle Egret, 5 Spotted Flycatcher, 3 Whinchat and several Yellow Wagtail. The Brownsea Lagoon still had 52 Spoonbill¬†as well as 60 Avocet.¬†There was also a decent push of Swallows throughout the day with decent sized flocks pulsing overhead.
