It seemed a few people got up early to see if the Garganey were still on Wareham Common, but alas…they had gone by dawn. However, they had been replaced by 101 Black-tailed Godwit and a stunning Ruff. There was a Little Ringed Plover on the Sunnyside Scrape along with 2 Egyptian Geese and 100+ Redwing. The springs first Willow Warbler was singing along the Turlin shoreline at Lytchett Bay and Red Kites were seen over Upton, Wareham and Lytchett Matravers.

The forecast for the rest of the week is looking promising with the wind easing away and changing direction from NE to SE which should be great for dropping more early spring migrants onto our shores. Having already had a decent run of spring migrants, what will be next over the next week? The first Yellow Wagtail? Common Whitethroat…..Hoopoe?
