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.

Avocet Brightens A Dull Day

Thanks to texts from Daragh and Dick, the day was enlivened by the appearance of an Avocet at Lodmoor. Thinking back, my first ever Avocet was at Lodmoor many moons ago. Considering the numbers in Poole Harbour, they are still a scarce, though annual occurrence locally, so I thought I'd better connect with this one to get it on my photo year list.

The light was dreadful, but you can see what it is.

And finally, something from Saturday.

Grey Heron at Radipole Lake.

 These two species bring my 10km square photo year list to 81.
