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.

Bohemian Rhapsody

The lure of Waxwings was too much to bare. So this afternoon I took a trip to Lytchett Matravers. A real birders favourite and they didn't disappoint, with a count of 26 individuals. Almost the whole time that I was there, they were flycatching.





8 of the 26 birds.


1st-winter female.

Adult male.

Flycatching.




Check out those waxy tipped secondaries.




Bit of a stumpy crest on this one. Kind of makes it look rather cute, I think.
