The forecast for the coming week looks very tasty indeed with strong SW winds on Monday and Tuesday with the wind then swing SE on Wednesday. Always the optimist, these conditions are classic for species such as Sabine’s Gull and Grey Phalarope, so be sure to check any gull flocks or muddy pools for a wandering migrant. Back to the real world, RSPB Lytchett Fields was back to ists best this morning with 2 Wood Sandpiper, 3 Ruff, 7 Ringed Plover, 2 Common Sandpiper, 43 Dunlin, 5 Greenshank and 20+ of each Redshank, Snipe and Lapwing. Also around the site were 3 WillowChiff, 1 Spotted Flycatcher, 3 Whinchat and several Blackcap. On Brownsea yesterday there were 3 Ruff, 2 Little Stint, 28 Spoonbill, 1 Knot, 250 Avocet, 220 Dunlin and good numbers of both Green and Spotted Redshank. An Osprey was sat in a dead tree at Rempstone. 2 Redstart were seen along Soldiers Road.
