It was good to see the Barnacle Geese return to Swineham this morning with 13 in fields just west of gravel pits, viewable from the footpath above the B&B road. There were also 2 Spoonbill on the Stilt Pools at Swineham, 1 Pochard on the gravel pit and 4 Marsh Harrier off the point. A Water Pipit and Spotted Redshank were on Lytchett Fields, off Jerry’s Point there was 1 Slavonian Grebe, 2 Black-necked Grebe, 3 Great Northern Diver and 9 Goldeneye. The White-tailed Eagle pair were along the southern shores and then headed towards the Wareham Channel. I’m Brands Bay this afternoon there was 1 Golden Plover (present for its 3rd day) and 1 ringtail Hen Harrier. At Slepe Moor, 14 Spoonbill were roosting but got spooked, 3 Goosander were at Holmebridge again, 14 Cattle Egret were near Bog Lane SANG.
