Highlights from a breezy but bright Spring Safari Cruise this morning were a Little Gull on the Brownsea Lagoon, 1 Greenshank in amongst 40 Black-tailed Godwit on the flooded fields at Swineham, an 80+ strong flock of Swift feeding together in the Frome Valley, and in the Wareham Channel 2 Marsh Harrier plus male Osprey 022 who caught a Bass and quickly delivered it to the nest. An Osprey was seen earlier in the morning in Lytchett Bay, and nearby at Frenches Farm the House Martins could be seen gathering mud for nest building! A separate count on the Brownsea Lagoon by Dorset Wildlife Trust staff also produced an extra Little Gull and 2 Roseate Tern.
