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.

Black Brants Are Back

A couple of visits to Littlesea, on The Fleet today, produced 2 Black Brants and singles of Pale-bellied Brent Goose, Merlin and Black Redstart. Other migrants included 12 Jays


Merlin.

Merlin food. A Meadow Pipit.

Black Redstart.

On Wednesday, at Littlesea, I was with Fred when he spotted the first of the winters Black Brants. I was also treated to a confiding Wheatear, just a shame the light wasn't better.
