NIGHTJAR WALK – THIS SATURDAY AT ARNE RSPB RESERVE – TO BOOK CLICK HERE – Last satursdays was an absolute belter with plenty of Nightjar activity, also Barn Owl, Tawny Owl, Spoonbill, Dartford WArbler, Glow Worms, Foxes and several bat species were encountered so come and get involved.

The Wood Sandpiper remained at Lytchett Fields and it was joined by 3 Little Ringed Plover. Out in Lytchett Bay there were 23 Curlew, 1 Great Crested Grebe and a Kingfisher, possibly one of this years juveniles having already moved down river from its natal grounds. A night recording session from the Lower Frome Valley last night produced a number of Curlew moving overhead, plenty of calling Redshank, Oystercatcher and Black-headed Gulls. A likely Little Egret flew over the mic at around 12:45am, also a Med Gull, juvenile Tawny Owls calling from nearby woodland and several Water Rail were noted. 

Possible Little Egret – Lower Frome Valley
