Portland: Last day.

Foggy, 12°, light SW.

Final day on Portland for this spring leaving just after 13:00. Thanks to the Obs “staff” Martin, Glen and the Prof and all the visitors both local and residential who kept us amused and entertained, great company. Cheers.

Not easy birding with the weather however a ♀ Redstart found in the Obs field and 3 Stonechat in the area and a Yellow Wagtail over. A couple of Chiffchaff in the garden and a Spotted Flycatcher.

1 Arctic Skua seen during a break in the fog and a small number of Common Scoter and an Oystercatcher heard calling through the mist.

A Little Egret seen on village pond just outside of Salisbury as we drove through this afternoon.
