A beautiful dawn and sunny morning on our last day at Portland leaving around 13:00.
Another early movement of 18 Yellow Wagtail, 2 Grey Wagtail, 5 Tree Pipit 60+ Siskin.
Someone was actually sea watching today and approx. 08:00 he called a Long-tailed Skua moving west. A few of us managed a distant view as it then disappeared around the bill. Another distant Skua noted that was probably a Bonxie.
In between packing etc. we managed 3 Blackcap, 4 Common Whitethroat, a Reed Warbler, 1 Sedge Warbler, 1 Spotted Flycatcher and 2 Wheatear.
Mammals: 2 North Atlantic Grey Seal.
Dragonflies: Emperor and Common Darter.
Butterflies: Brimstone (a scarce butterfly on Portland), Large White, Common Blue, Red Admiral, Painted Lady and Meadow Brown.
Moths: Hummingbird Hawkmoth, Convolvulus Hawkmoth.
A good week on Portland with a lot of good birds, good insects and good company. Thanks to Martin and Glen. Cheers
