Dorchester WeBS Count - March

Tuesday 15 march 2011

I set out this morning full of hope of adding to my year list which has been remarkably static recently.  Would it be a Sand Martin? a Wheatear? a Little Ringed Plover?  a Chiff Chaff? None of these but a group of 3 Oystercatchers flew over my head piping away and a little later a Redshank appeared being harassed by a Crow.  I also added number three to my Butterfly list - a Comma flew up from in front of me to settle in a Willow tree to nectar on the pollen.

Still over 200 wigeon and Tufted Ducks counted so they don't think it is spring yet.
