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.

Blue-headed Wagtail? And Dorset's Rare Bird Of The Month (August)

Went to Abbotsbury Swannery last night in the hope that the previous days Citrine Wagtail would put in a repeat appearance. Sadly, there was no sign, but did see the following interesting Yellow Wagtail.

Surely this has to be a Blue-headed Wagtail, though ruling out a hybrid "channel" wagtail would be a problem, one would guess.

On the subject of the Citrine Wagtail, Dorset's bird of the month for August goes to this individual, so, well done to Luke Phillips who found it.

I don't see many of you attempting the mystery photo, what's the matter with you all?
