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 photographs are © Brett Spencer, unless indicated otherwise. The above image is of a Siberian Rubythroat, taken in Holland in 2016.

Portland Again

More of the same today, with Nightingale and Wryneck still about. Dipped on another bloody Corncrake today, despite my best efforts.  

Despite what these photos might say, this Wryneck has been particularly elusive.

A couple more photos from today.

How yellow is this Willow Warbler? What a stunner!

Sedge Warbler.

Hi Brett. We were on Portland, too on Thursday, on our jollies. I'm a bit of a dabbler when it comes to identifying birds, so forgive what may be a basic question. Saw many kestrels being quite social, saw a group of 4 dancing around each other by the cliffs. I'd not seen this behaviour before. Were they kestrels? Is this normal?
