Lytchett Fields is still looking strong at present with a great sweep of birds across the whole site with 3 Ruff, 2 Little Stint, 1 Curlew Sandpiper, 16 Greenshank, 100+ Redshank, 1 Spoonbill, 200+ Dunlin, 40+ Lapwing and 300+ Teal. In Middlebere the Great White Egret was seen again and there were 21 Spoonbill, 2 Osprey (one Scottish ringed bird and 1 un-ringed), 700+ Black-tailed Godwit, 1 Peregrine, 40 Avocet, 2 Greenshank and 4 Grey Plover. In Holes Bay, 4 Black Swans appeared from somewhere, but we’re not assuming Australia. The Brownsea Lagoon was also looking fab with 1 Little Stint, 6 Sanderling, 6 Grey Plover, 8 Spoonbill, 2 Kingfisher, 3 Pintail of note alongside increasing numbers of Wigeon, Gadwall and Shoveler, 300+ Oystercatcher, 40 Avocet, numerous Redshank, Sandwich Tern, and 2 Firecrest near the villa. The Grey Phalarope was again out in the NW corner of Arne Moors.
