The Lesser Yellowlegs was also still on Lytchett Fields with several Redshank, 1 Knot, 2 Curlew Sandpiper and 100+ Dunlin. There were also 3 different Marsh Harrier that visited the site too. In Poole Harbour west there were 6 different Marsh Harrier that went into roost, also 1 Merlin and a ringtail Hen Harrier were present. Another lamping session in the Lower Frome Valley produced 2 new Jack Snipe ringed and 2 Common Snipe, with a Woodcock and further 2 Jack Snipe seen. The Great White Egret was in Middlebere again with c500 Avocet, c600 Black-tailed Godwit, c 300 Dunlin, 1 Spotted Redshank and a Grey Plover.
