Dorchester WeBS, toilet & Ewelme

Monday 21 November 2011
Not very exciting but 3285 water birds of 21 species can't be too bad.  Highlights a Male Pintail, 2 Egyption Geese, 7 Little Grebe and for some reason over 1000 Gulls, mostly Lesser Black-backed, sitting on the Allen Pit.  Also a nice flock of around 100 Linnet near the river.

And the toilet? a Feathered Thorn (moth) taking a rest on the wall - I hope people weren't watching as I went in with my camera - there's probably a law against it.

A quick run over to Ewelme to fill up the seed feeders was rewarded by a doubling in the number of Water Rails from 1 to 2.
