Harbour Update – posted 30/08/16

The Osprey interest is building with 2 individuals using the dead trees at Middlebere for most of the day, one even looked as if it was going to use the nesting platform but decided to ditch it at the last minute. On the Brownsea Lagoon there were 11 Spoonbill, 4 Curlew Sandpiper, 4 Spotted Redshank, 2 Ringed Plover, 5 Greenshank, 2 Knot and a Peregrine. At Lytchett Fields there were 2 Ruff, 2 Little Stint, 30 Dunlin, 2 Greenshank, 15+ Green Sandpiper, 1 Common Sandpiper, 31 Redshank, 50+ Black-tailed Godwit, 2 Yellow Wagtails and 20+ Chiffchaff around the site. Despite the urban setting, Poole Town Centre can be great for migrants, you just needed to know where to look.  In the scrub around Holes Bay north there was 1 Spotted Flycatcher, 6 Blackcap and 10+ Chiffchaff, on the bit of rough ground behind Kerry Foods there was a Redstart, 4 Blackcap, 10 Chiffchaff and a Whitethroat and out on the Twin Sails site 2 Wheatear and a Whitethroat.
