Monthly WeBS count at Dorchester. 1552 birds of 22 species. Best was a pair of Pintail and 8 Egyptian Geese, the latter in pairs and very noisy. Probably would have been more birds but hardly anything on the Sailing Club Pit where a dredger was busy deepening the water round the islands. Not sure what that will do for the wildlife but doubt it will help.
