Portland 9th Sep: last day

Left Portland early as it was quiet and could not resist dropping in on the Short-billed Dowitcher for a brief visit before the drive home.

Check out Badger's video of the Dowitcher @

Early morning at Portland had just a few Tree Pipits, Grey Wagtails and Yellow Wagtails moving, a few Willow Warblers in the garden and Hirundines moving through.

An uneventful drive home, a Hobby seen near Salisbury was the only noteworthy observation. Back home the Tawny Owls were were active in the garden last night.

Thanks to Martin Cade (the Obs warden) and various local and visiting birders and of course the birds etc for making it another interesting and enjoyable week, 97 species of bird this week.
