Thursday 11th August – Lytchett Bay   Leave a comment

This Roe Deer buck seems to be wondering why my tripod is blocking his route. Note the broken antler.

It was a cool, blustery and rather wet visit to Lytchett Bay this morning.

No sign of the hoped for Wood Sandpiper, the best I could do was 12 Little Egret in the far fields and 2 Green Sandpiper over Holton Lee. Ther was a large gull roost on Otter Island which included at least 2 adult Yellow-legged Gulls, several Common Gulls as well as both black-backs, Herring and Black-headed.

The rest of the day was taken up with appointments, shopping and a visit to the gym.

Prior to the mid 80s seeing one Little Egret would have been a cause for celebration, let alone 12
