Harbour Update – posted 23/008/15

Over the last few days the harbour has seen some excellent bird counts from a variety of species. A full account will be written up tomorrow, but highlights have included still at least 4 Osprey in the harbour, most visible out in the Wareham Channel, and also the dead trees at Middlebere, and one even over at South Haven. The 4 Wood Sandpipers remain at Lytchett Fields, and are now joined by 2 Little Stint which were feeding together along with 3 Ruff, 17 Ringed Plover, 1 Little Ringed Plover and a wonderful selection of other waders. If you haven’t been to Lytchett Fields I suggest you try and get down as soon as possible. For directions click HERE and click on the Lytchett Bay section  of the map. On Brownsea the Spoonbill total has now swelled to 11 birds.  Yesterday evening, Middlebere was another hot spot yesterday with a Wood Sandpiper, 2 Osprey, 3 Spoonbill and good numbers of other waders.
