Harbour Update – posted 24/06/15

It seems a few passage waders are turning up elsewhere in the country/county with Green Sandpiper, Common Sandpiper and Spotted Redshank all reported from various locations. Last year, Lytchett Fields first Spotted Redshank of the autumn appeared on June 22nd, so any day now. I’ve heard on the grapevine from a few friends that much further north this year spring arrived around three weeks late, and as far up as Iceland neither spring nor summer has arrived at all. So I’m assuming that if in the areas where spring arrived late we could see a delay in some returning species, and whether some of the returning birds we’re seeing now are failed breeders from the far north.  Sightings are still pretty thin on the ground with 2 Spoonbill on the Brownsea Lagoon today, at Lytchett Fields there was 1 Green Sandpiper and the usual Lapwing and Redshank and Black-tailed Godwit
