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.

That Richard's Again

Very quiet at Littlesea, The Fleet today, but the Richard's Pipit showed well, albeit a little distantly for the camera. Can't imagine it staying for much longer, having almost completed it's moult.




Note the broad buff fringes to the adult median and greater coverts and also the tertials. It's in the process of growing a new tail. It's really looking lovely now I reckon.


And now something for my mate Ian. Are these Chiffchaffs, pictured below, yours by any chance?
