Harbour Update – posted 31/05/23

Another blowy but beautiful day. An Iberian Chiffchaff was reported along the Ballard ridge on May 30th . On Brownsea a Little Tern dropped in on the Boomerang, and there were Little Tern boomerang 3 Ringed Plover, 1 Dunlin, 8 Bar-tailed Godwit and 5 Avocet, with 5 Sanderling leaving Brownsea north at dawn. There were 2 -3 White-tailed Eagles in and around the Wareham Channel. We mentioned the other day about the Grasshopper Warbler that we recently found on territory, well we put out a sound recorder and managed to get several evenings worth of recordings where it sung every night almost continuously for 6 hours straight each night. For reference, below is a short section which is an extract of a longer section of song.
