Harbour update – posted 16/05/15

It’s great to hear news of Nightjar arriving back on territory at various locations around the harbour. This evening Nightjar were active at several spots along the Corfe to Arne road with birds seemingly feeding on flying ants. We just need the balmy summer evenings to kick in to make watching/listening to them that little more pleasurable. Again RSPB Lytchett Fields saw most attention with 2 Ruff still, 2 Wood Sandpiper, 5 Lapwing, 4 Spoonbill, 35 Black-tailed Godwit, 1 Dunlin and 1 Greenshank. Red Kites were seen at Stoborough and over Brownsea. At Swineham the immature Little Gull is still present, also there 1 Cuckoo, 10 Reed Warbler, 8 Cetti’s Warbler, 2 Sedge Warbler and 1 Marsh Harrier.

DON’T MISS OUT – Exciting and interesting up and coming talk by Dr Emily Joachim on the gorgeous Little Owl, plus other UK raptors

IMPORTANT – This is a reminder that there is strictly no parking down Slough Lane for access to Lytchett Fields. Today a silver Vauxhall Corsa was partially blocking the access gate for Wessex Water. Thank you
