Harbour Update – posted 16/07/20

It’s getting hot again, zapping the energy out of any long birding stint. Not much to report today other waders at Lytchett Fields with 8 Little Ringed Plover, 24 Lapwing, 5 Green Sandpiper, 103 Common Redshank and 1 Spotted Redshank. At Holes Bay there were 50 Curlew, the Wigeon, 1 Whitethroat and 29 Black-tailed Godwit. From Lytchett Bay view there was 1 Whimbrel, 1 Common Tern and good numbers of Reed Warbler in the reed beds. Female Osprey CJ7 was on the Middlebere nest platform from 7:00am to 7:50am but wasn’t seen after that. A short ringing session in the west of the harbour saw 2 juvenile Stonechat caught which were two of an amazing 8 present in one small area highlighting the good breeding season they’ve had.
