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.

Slightly Better Ropy Record Shots

My friend Ashley had come across from Hampshire for a day out birding today. He wasn't to be disappointed with Portland Bill being alive with birds, although the only oddity we managed to find was a single Woodlark flying over. After the morning spent at the Bill, we headed for Littlesea, The Fleet. The Red-breasted Flycatcher and Red-backed Shrike were still in residence, though we failed to find the Yellow-browed Warbler. Both the shrike and the flycatcher showed well, albeit distantly, and there was one incredible moment, when I was watching the shrike on the old army camp fence and the flycatcher landed on the fence next to it and was in the same field of view. Anyway, now for some shit photos.

Red-breasted Flycatcher.

Red-backed Shrike.
