Harbour Update – posted 29/08/15

Undoubtedly the bird of the day was a stunning Bluethroat that was trapped and ringed in Lytchett Bay. Unfortunately, the bird was never seen again after being released, so we hope you enjoy these gorgeous ‘in the hand’ photos. Also ringed at Lytchett Bay today were 6 Grasshopper Warbler, 1 Whinchat, 1 Dartford Warbler, 1 Common Sandpiper and a mix of commoner migrants. Its likely there are currently 6 Osprey in then harbour with 4 seen together in the Wareham Channel early morning with others seen in Lytchett Bay and Brands Bay around the same time. Also at RSPB Lytchett Fields 2 Wood Sandpiper, 4 Ruff, 1 Little Stint, 1 juv Cuckoo, 7 Knot, several Green and Common Sandpiper plus 3 Spotted Flycatcher and a Whinchat. At Middlebere this morning a juv Marsh Harrier, 2 Hobby, 3 Greenshank, 2 Spotted flycatcher, 2 Tree Pipit and 1 Redstart were noted.
