Harbour Update – posted 14/07/23

The rain kept birding opportunities pretty limited today. Saying that, having been missing for several days, male Osprey ‘374’ made a surprise appearance on a harbour nest platform mid-morning, looking equally wet and annoyed as the Osprey family on the nest. At Holme lane GP there was 1 Barnacle Goose, 2 Common Sandpiper, 1 Little Ringed Plover, 7 Egyptian Geese and 11 Gadwall and at Lytchett Fields there was a nice spread of waders including 52 Redshank, 32 Black-tailed Godwit, 2 Curlew, 2 Oystercatcher, 1 Greenshank and 1 Green Sandpiper along with the first returning Common Gull of the autumn. This evening the Cattle Egret flock at the Stoborough causeway had grown to 8 today.
