It really has begun! Autumn migration is now underway with the first few migrants starting to drop into various places. This morning on the edge of Upton CP a Pied Flycatcher was found and 2 Garden Warbler were there yesterday. Juvenile Willow Warblers are cropping up in twos and three, but it won’t be long until a mass wave of these birds will pass through the area heading south. In Holes Bay there was 108 Black-tailed Godwit, 1 Common Sandpiper, 1 Whimbrel and 2 Common Tern. At Lytchett Bay the Spotted Crake was seen again and was joined by a Wood Sandpiper, although this area of Lytchett Bay is strictly private with no access. On the Brownsea Lagoon 27 Little Egret, 260 Oystercatchers, 72 Redshanks, 6 Black-tailed Godwits, 9 Greenshank, 2 Spotted Redshank, 3 Avocet, 2 Dunlin, 1 Curlew, 1 Whimbrel and 3 Ringed Plover, 1 Common Gull and the Bar-headed Goose was reported again a Poole Park.
