Harbour Update – posted 27/07/20

Another day of rain was just what we needed to see some water get added to the dried up set of pools at Swineham, although we could do with quite a bit more to really make them productive again. That said a Common Sandpiper and a Yellow Wagtail were drawn to them post the downpour. Lytchett Fields doesn’t need to worry about the rain to fill it up as the spring high tides are currently doing a good job of that and saw 23 Green Sandpiper on there along with 2 Little Ringed Plover, 7 Greenshank, 1 Spotted Redshank and 1 Common Sandpiper. The Cattle Egret was again on the gravel pit island atr Swineham with 7 Little Egret. Other than this……the rain kept most birds and birders at bay!!! There was also late news of the harbours first Pied Flycatcher which was photographed on a fence near the main Arne car park last week.
