    The 3 Scaup (1 drake) still today but nothing else of any note. Swannery open for the 'spring, summer & autumn' from tomorrow.

    @debbyseamist Greylag Goose here 8.30 flew SE.

    Tue, 13/03/2018 - 18:30

    Very quiet on patch last few days. The 3 Scaup are still present but no Wheatears or Sand Martins yet. Not even bee…

    The 3 Scaup still today but can't find anything else of any note.

    3 Scaup today (1 drake). Not a lot else so far.

    Mon, 05/03/2018 - 15:54

    Unusual to see 5 Bar-tailed Godwits feeding in the meadow with 2 Dunlin & 300 Lapwing. No Golden Plover again though.

    Mon, 05/03/2018 - 10:31

    2 Scaup back today (1 drake). A few waders... Curlew heard, Grey Plover, 3 Dunlin, 3 Redshank, 2 Oystercatcher, 100 Lapwing.

    Thu, 01/03/2018 - 15:59

    A few extras this pm... 2 Avocet, 3 Black-tailed Godwits & a Woodcock. No Garganey though.

    Thu, 01/03/2018 - 12:43

    Stuff clearly moving now but where to? Can't think it's any better further west? 100's Lapwing, Golden Plover, Redw…

    Wed, 28/02/2018 - 10:21

    No Glaucous Gull so far but a drake Scaup (yesterday's was a duck), not much else.

    Wed, 28/02/2018 - 08:35

    A very sorry looking Cattle Egret on the walk to work this morning. Can't be many dung flies around at the moment! 😬

    Tue, 27/02/2018 - 18:15

    Glaucous Gull still present to 4.30pm at least. Not much else to add to this morning's tally.

    Tue, 27/02/2018 - 09:50

    3cy Glaucous Gull eating a dead swan on the beach opposite. Also singles of Cattle Egret & Scaup. Embayment largely frozen.

    Mon, 26/02/2018 - 21:02

    A few extras this afternoon with a Spoonbill dropping in briefly from the west at 4pm before continuing east; a Cat…

    Mon, 26/02/2018 - 13:48

    The 1st Spring Passage Curlew this am. Well that's what I'd usually put it down as at this time of year! 😬

    Mon, 26/02/2018 - 10:27

    Today's highlights so far... 3 Scaup still; Greylag flew in from the west; 9 Golden Plover flew east. Very few gulls again unfortunately.

    Sun, 25/02/2018 - 19:03

    50+ Golden Plover at Snipe Gate near Rodden today & a similar number just west of Swyre yesterday both from B3157.

    Fri, 23/02/2018 - 15:20

    The 3 Scaup still today. No sign of yesterday's reported Cattle Egret. A Greylag Goose the only 'new in' bird. An…

    Thu, 22/02/2018 - 13:48

    3cy Glaucous Gull just flown in from the west with as much tackle attached than you'd find in an average tackle sho…

    Thu, 22/02/2018 - 10:25

    The 3 Scaup the best so far today. Very few gulls present & certainly no Ross's 🙁

    Wed, 21/02/2018 - 10:11

    3 Scaup & a Cattle Egret not really any consolation!

    Tue, 20/02/2018 - 10:34

    3 Scaup still plus the regular hybrid. No Cattle Egrets.

    Mon, 19/02/2018 - 13:23

    At least one Cattle Egret still around this am.

    Mon, 19/02/2018 - 10:28

    3 Scaup still this am.

    Fri, 16/02/2018 - 10:25

    Only been a max of 3 Scaup all week & I've not seen any Cattle Egrets, though I've not been here at dawn or dusk to see if any are roosting.

    Wed, 14/02/2018 - 09:21

    Distant 2nd or 3rd cy Glaucous Gull at dusk yesterday. Clearly in distress and trying to rid itself of something in…

    Fri, 09/02/2018 - 11:43

    The 6 Scaup the best I can do here so far today. Perhaps the Cattle Egrets have all gone to Studland? @DorsetBirdClub

    Thu, 08/02/2018 - 13:45

    6 Scaup still this am but can't find any Cattle Egrets as yet.

    Wed, 07/02/2018 - 10:32

    For the 2nd time in as many years I was bitten by a False Black Widow 🕷 this morning that had hid in my work shirt…
