This blog is about my birding exploits, which mainly take place in the Weymouth/Portland area, in Dorset. Will also include stuff from elsewhere, plus some other critters too. Hope you enjoy.

March Isn't So Bad

An evening walk around Littlesea, on The Fleet, came up trumps with a stonking male Ring Ouzel.  It later transpired that the bird was first found yesterday. Of course, I didn't go there yesterday, bloody typical. Still, at least I saw it.

What a beauty!



Mind that razor wire buddy.

Had the misfortune to meet a completely ignorant twit looking for the Richard's Pipit, who, no matter what I said, didn't care about flushing the Ring Ouzel. After we had exchanged verbal abuse, he went on his way. Mark gave me a good description of him, he called him a Twatcher. Thankfully, there were others who DID appreciate this bird.

The best of the rest were 10 each of Wheatears and Sandwich Terns.

A couple of photos from Abbotsbury yesterday.

A pair of Tufted Ducks.

"Do I look like a Wood Duck?"  No, sorry mate, you are a Mallard stupid!
