Harbour Update – posted 13/08/22

We’ve been dreaming of these sort of easterly winds in August for years! It seemed impossible to disappoint and sure enough today saw the Aquatic Warbler¬†count double in under an hour, with a further 2 trapped and ringed at Lytchett Bay after yesterday’s success. These four birds (3 at Lytchett Bay and 1 at Longham Lakes) are the only UK records this year!

Migrant Osprey are becoming more prominent by the day, with unringed individuals logged at Middlebere and Lytchett Bay. The Wytch juvenile Pied Flycatcher has continued its stay for another day,  having arrived on Monday and a White-tailed Eagle was seen overhead at Morden Bog this morning.

The big question now is what will tomorrow bring?!

Spotted Flycatcher – Middlebere – Mark Wright

Aquatic Warbler – Lytchett Bay – Shaun Robson
