What a stunner of a day, despite the thick fog early doors. Best of the day was the Forster’s Tern being seen again on the Brownsea Lagoon, although it wasn’t located at any other site during the course of the day. A Garden Warbler was in the PCW Drain, there were 8 Reed Warblers singing around Holes Bay this morning and a total of 7 Whimbrel and a Common Sandpiper by Twin Sails Bridge. An Osprey was seen in Lytchett Bay this morning, a Great White Egret flew past the Ham Common viewpoint and there were 12 Whimbrel in Middlebere. Yesterday 4 different Great White Egret were present by late evening with 1 on Arne Moors and 3 in the Frome Valley. Swifts were passing over in small numbers during the course of the day, the White-tailed Eagle pair were in the Wareham Channel for a few hours after sunrise.
