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.

Black Guillemot

Went to look at the Black Guillemot in Portland Harbour today and it was showing well from Portland Castle this afternoon. On the way home, a male Black Redstart was still showing in the Bridging Camp.

The black barring in the white wing patch shows this Black Guillemot is a 1st-winter bird.



The mostly white underwing rules out Pigeon Guillemot.

Great Northern Diver from Portland Castle.
