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.

More Continental Coal Tit

Saw both Continental and British Coal Tits today. The former at Portland Castle and the latter at both Wyke Regis church yard and Osmington Mills. A couple more pics of Continental below.

Note how the bib splays out at the bottom towards the shoulders and how it's extent on the upper breast.

This bird was very vocal and soon flew off to the south.
