Harbour Update – posted 15/08/16

This is nice now, seeing Osprey appear on our sightings page on a daily basis now with one seeing multiple times during the day as it first entered the harbour early morning and was later seen again around the Arne peninsular at 11am and then again at 3pm. Later on in august and by the beginning of September its not unusual to have sightings of two sometimes three together so here’s hoping more arrive over the next couple of weeks. At Lytchett Fields 2 Little Stint arrived and were settled on the fields with 1 Ruff, 500+ Black-tailed Godwit, 4 Common Sandpiper, 6 Green Sandpiper, 10 Snipe, 2 Yellow Wagtail and 2 Stonechat. At South Haven, Studland there was 1 Spotted Flycatcher, 1 Tree Pipit and 2 Garden Warbler. Last nights sound recording session was again fairly quiet but Tree Pipit are now a regular feature (or have been for the last three nights anyway). Also recorded was 1 Green Sandpiper, 1 Redshank, 1 Dunlin, 1 Ringed Plover and a single passerine call.
