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.

Dorset's Bird Of The Month (July)

Dorset's bird of the month, for July, goes to the White-rumped Sandpiper that was at Lodmoor. Well done to the finder Ian Stanley.

And now, a couple of bird photos to bore you with. Both taken at Ferrybridge in recent weeks.

A juvenile Mediterranean Gull. This image does have a certain ambiance I reckon.

A juvenile Dunlin, just at the start of it's moult into 1st-winter plumage. Note the new scapular.

Whilst on the subject of Ferrybridge, the other day I noticed this.

What could have made such marks in the sand? A turtle perhaps?

What the ....?

Bloody hell Pete, what are you doing man?

Well, he was trying to get up close and personal to these Knot. What people will do for their art, eh?
