Harbour Update – posted 18/09/15

First up, a Wryneck was discovered along the Middlebere track during the morning, which showed well for a couple of viewers but then disappeared never to be seen again unfortunately. However the track also saw 3 Whinchat, 2 Spotted Flycatcher, 2 Redstart, and a female Bullfinch and from the hide 3 Spotted Redshank and a Greenshank were noted. At RSPB Lytchett Fields another scares Woodpecker showed its self when a Lesser-spotted Woodpecker flew across the fields, settled for a short while and then moved on. Lesser-spots do occasionally move with the tit flocks during the autumn so well work keeping an eye out for them. It was also a big Chiff/Willow morning at Lytchett Bay with a combined total of around 150 birds, also 6 Spotted Flycatcher, 5 Whitethroat, 1 Grasshopper Warbler, 3 Whinchat, 1 Wood Sandpiper, 1 Curlew Sandpiper and 2 Ruff all present. A count at Brands Bay saw 170 Teal, 9 Wigeon, 12 Pintail, 6 Greenshank, 49 Dunlin, 2 Common Tern, 2 Sandwich Tern and a surprise single Black Tern
