No sign of yesterdays Red-backed Shrike unfortunately, but partial compensation came when an Osprey was seen fishing through the shimmering heat haze in the Wareham Channel mid morning. With easterly winds picking up again some wader passed picked up again with 12 Ringed Plover and 6 Dunlin out on Lytchett Fields, 1 Ringed Plover and 10 Dunlin at Arne and a Whimbrel in Middlebere. The male Marsh Harrier seems to be a good provider as he makes frequent return trips to his female and chicks with talons full of goodies. There was just a single Hobby over Moors today.
