Holes Bay was looking good this morning with a nice range of waders feeding out on the mud at low tide. If you look at Holes Bay on a map, we’re normally referring to the north-east section of the bay when reporting our sightings. Today there was a feeding flock 13 Greenshank, 2 Common Sandpiper, 1 summer plumage Turnstone, 6 Redshank, 1 Whimbrel, 63 Black-tailed Godwit, 29 Curlew, 1 Kingfisher and many Lesser Black-backed Gull. At Swineham there were 3 Marsh Harrier present, but still no obvious sign the young are ready to leave the nest sites, 3 Great Crested Grebe on the main pit and down at the point 1 Common Sandpiper, 1 Green Sandpiper, 1 Cetti’s Warbler and 1 Bearded Tit. At Lytchett Bay there were 2 Common Sandpiper, 1 Whimbrel, 52 Black-tailed Godwit, 3 Greenshank, 12 Lapwing and 32 Teal.
