Late update( part 2 )!

Weather: Pretty sunny and warm, occasional dark clouds over head but luckily no rain.
Location: Middblebere to see whats around and Durlston to see if we could find the Common Rosefinch which had been see lately.
Outlook: Middlebere was a bit slow. A lovely party of Yellow wagtails seen flying overhead, they landed In a Field and started feeding next to the Cows, lovely birds. Inside the hide, there was not much on the lake. No waders, with only a few Shelducks, Swallows, Little Egrets and no Osprey today.

Durlston: We did not manage to see the Common rosefinch today as it had not been seen anyway. Although we managed to find two lovely Spotted flycatchers hawking from a top of a dead tree ( New yrlist! ). Common and Lesser whitethroats were around along with the more commoner Tits, Finches, Warblers. I tried seawatching but it was not very good with only small passings of Gannets and Scoter Sps ( most lickely Common ).

Birding today:) plus the dentist:( wish me luck on both!


  1. I'm very impressed with your pictures and stories regarding the birds and their locations
