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 5 Grebes

Went down to Sandsfoot this afternoon, where grebes were the highlight. It's certainly been a good winter in Portland Harbour. I must admit, I was looking for passerines, but only managed singles of Black Redstart, Chiffchaff and Grey Wagtail. Now to the grebes, where I noted a single Red-necked, 13 Slavonian and 18 Black-necked Grebes amongst the scarcer species.

And now for a couple of other pics.
