More evidence of wader movements over the last few days as both Brownsea and Lytchett Bay see new birds arrive. At Lytchett Bay there were 3 Green Sandpiper, 2 Common Sandpiper, including a colour ringed individual (can’t wait to see where that was ringed) also 30 Lapwing, 1 Spotted Redshank, 74 Black-tailed Godwit, 3 Curlew, 17 Teal and 8 Redshank. On Brownsea 1 Spoonbill, 1 Common Sandpiper, 1 Greenshank, and adult Yellow-legged Gull causing mayhem with the Black-headed Gulls. Up on Slepe Heath a Cuckoo was seen harassing some Magpies or visa versa, also there 3 Tree Pipit, 1 Woodlark, 1 Dartford Warbler and a family party of Stonechat.

The attached video is of the Cuckoo taking a rest from its brawl with the Magpies up on Slepe Heath
