Harbour Update – posted 16/07/15

After taking two weeks respite from night recording I set my gear up again last night out in the Lower Frome Valley, but somewhere slightly different to normal. I haven’t gone through all of the recording yet, but within the first ten minuets I had a new species for my night recording list as a Green Sandpiper passed quite close calling as it headed west. Also several Water Rail passed close by and were also calling from the reeds. A few Curlew were passing over and Redshank, Oystercatcher and Lapwing were all noted. Two young Tawny Owls were consistently calling from a near by woodland.

Green Sandpiper – Lower Frome Valley 


At RSPB Lytchett Fields there were 6 Greenshank, 64 Redshank, 37 Black-tailed Godwit, 17 Lapwing, 8 Teal, 22 Little Egret and up to 15 Green Sandpiper. A Peregrine flew over Poole train station mid morning and the Osprey was seen over Arne.
