Harbour Update – posted 29/06/16

An Osprey seen drifting over the A35 near the Bakers Arms, heading towards Lytchett Bay was the presumed spring/summer lingerer that’s been around since late April, but its possible it could be a newly arrived bird as non-breeders can and have arrived in the harbour as early as late June and early July. At Lytchett Bay the summer plumaged Ruff was still present and a newly arrived Greenshank turned up, also 43 Black-tailed Godwit and 26 Redshank were present. On Lytchett Heath a juvenile Kingfisher was the first of the autumn and an adult Whitethroat was a presumed migrant there.
