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 (October)
Whilst we may have our favourites, be it the Pallid Swift at Christchurch or the obliging Short-toed Lark on Portland, the honour must go to the Thrush Nightingale at Portland Bill. Shame that I only heard the damn thing call. Anyway, well done to the finder who pulled it out of a mist net, so maybe, I should be congratulating the net itself. Certainly yet another contender for bird of the year in Dorset.
