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.

Meds Glorious Meds

Went to Littlesea, on The Fleet today. Fairly quiet, with the highlights being singles of Golden Plover, Black Redstart and Knot and 5 each of Grey Plovers and Bar-tailed Godwits. The Mediterranean Gulls are starting to look good now. Give it a week or two and many will be in full summer plumage. Also, saw the Black Redstart at the end of my road again today, plus Bittern, Chiffchaff and Marsh Harriers at Radipole Lake.



Who said gulls were horrible. Mediterranean Gulls are stunningly beautiful creatures.




But, what are they feeding on? Comments will be welcome on this.

Hi Brett, my best bet would be oysters but not sure!
