Harbour Update – posted 13/05/16

An early cold spell gave way to a glorious and sweltering afternoon which saw the Black-winged Stilt and Glossy Ibis put in appearances at Lytchett Fields again, although the Glossy Ibis was seen to head off high at around 9am and wasn’t seen again whilst the Black-winged Stilt was flushed by a Buzzard around midday. Also at Lytchett Fields a single Hobby, plenty of House Martin and Swallow in during the mid-morning deluge, 5 Greenshank and 3 Whimbrel. At Arne a Hobby, Cuckoo, strong passage of Swallows, 4 Whimbrel, 2 Grey Plover, 8 Swift and a Marsh Harrier were logged.
