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.

All's Well That Ends Well

The Semipalmated Sandpiper did the decent thing and leave Poole Harbour and return to The Fleet this afternoon. A mad dash after work ensued, with the desired result.

A cracking juvenile.



The Semipalmated Sandpiper with Dunlin and Curlew Sandpipers. There were 5 of the latter present, all of which were juveniles.

Also present was this juvenile Little Ringed Plover.

Let's hope it returns to Ferrybridge, as it will be much better for getting close up photos. Well done Steve and thanks.
