Harbour Update – posted 17/07/23

We thought today might be a fledge day for one/some of the Osprey chicks, with several high ‘helicoptering’ motions as they tried to lift off, but to no avail. With settled weather forecast for the rest of the week, there’s no doubt that fledging is imminent, but just when and which one will go first is anyones guess. Today at Lytchett Fields it was busy with waders and saw 96 Common Redshank, 7 Greenshank, 3 Whimbrel, 3 Common Snipe, 1 Common Sandpiper and c15 Lapwing. The site also saw the first post-breeding/fledging Kingfisher of the autumn arrive on site.
