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.

Pied Flycatchers

A spell on Portland this morning was productive, with 3 Pied Flycatchers, single males at Barleycrates Lane, Reap Lane and Portland Castle, 4 Redstarts, 3 at Reap Lane and a single at Portland Castle and a single White Wagtail at Reap Lane.

All 3 Pied Flycatchers seen today were 1st-summer males.

Greedy bugger.

And finally, a male Redstart from Reap Lane.
