Quiet Bank Holiday weekend…

It was a beautiful bank holiday in the end with the sun shining down on us for most of the time, but despite the good weather reports were few and far between.

Best was still 30 Black-tailed Godwit in Holes Bay, also there, 2 Common Tern, 2 Little Egret, 1 Sedge Warbler and numerous Shelduck. At Lytchett Bay a Whitethroat was still holding territory near the cottage on Slough Lane, also Swallow, House Martin and Pied Wagtail showed signs of breeding.  At Middlebere the male Pochard was still present along with a Ringed Plover and Sandwich Tern.  On Brownsea a pair of Yellow-legged Gull currently have one chick continuing the on-going success of this species at this site.
