Seeing double

Tuesday 29 November 2016

Thought I was seeing double today as both the Little Egret and the Green Sandpiper appear to have found friends! Unfortunately not posing together. Had trouble with my account so guess I should note the November Swallow seen over the airfield on 27th.

Dorchester WeBS count

Tuesday 15 November 2016

Managed to avoid injury on the barbed wire fence this time! Total of 2150 birds of 24 water species. Highlights were a single male Goosander, 4 Red-crested Pochards, 90 Golden Plover and 190 Lapwing and always good to catch fleeting views of a couple of Kingfishers.

Great work by a group of trainees from RAF Halton yesterday helping open channels on the cress beds.  Today the first ice on the new pond heralded by the first sighting this winter of a Green Sandpiper.
