The first newly fledged Goshawk of the season was photographed at Holton Lee this morning. Where it’s come from is an unknown but surely this bird hasn’t dispersed far?! The raptor was also briefly glimpsed over Lytchett Fields about half on hour later.  Lytchett Bay also featured Great Crested Grebe, 1 Common Sandpiper, 9 Greenshank and 18 Black-tailed Godwit, with a further 4 Common Sandpiper, 15 Green Sandpiper, 2 Snipe and 2 Little Ringed Plover on Lytchett Fields. An evening session out around the Wareham Channel area produced female White-tailed Eagle out over the gull islands, 4 different Marsh Harrier including the newly fledged juvenile, up to 15 Common Sandpiper in the mouth of the Frome and 5 Yellow-legged Gulls on the Swineham Scrape. There were also 2 hunting Hobby over Arne, male Osprey 022 was seen with a fish and Peregrine were logged on the cranes at Poole Quay and over Brownsea. Off Arne there were 2 Whimbrel and a single Ringed Plover. Finally, on the Brownsea Lagoon today was 1 Spotted Redshank, 1 Little Ringed Plover, 50 Dunlin, 4 Greenshank, 2 Common Sandpiper and 104 Common Redshank.
