Dorchester WeBS count - just 425 water birds of 14 Species. Most noteworthy was probably a pair of Wigeon. This has happened before at Dorchester and last time one of the pair had a damaged wing and it was assumed the other stayed behind instead of migrating. Didn't get a look at the state of the wings but could be the same again? Kingfisher was my first of the year but I don't get out much. Also very good to hear the purring of a Turtle Dove and a singing Willow Warbler, both near Wally Corner.
