Spring part 2

Ignoring the fact that I merely twitched all of the good birds I saw in spring, it was tremendous, only 9 days into May and Portland had landed not only a 1st for Dorset but a 9th for Britain. Spectacled Warbler had sat somewhere in the mythical but will probably turn up one day category for years, every spring rings the same and on at least one day of the season one will be talked up as long overdue. The difficult bit was going to be where and when...



A Few days prior to this a 1s Male Red-footed Falcon graced the bill 


Two Days before that saw the discovery of a singing Dusky Warbler in Top fields!


A Singing Wood Warbler was also discovered, a weird day.





Fast Forward a few weeks, back to work and everything was quiet, then this started singing at Lodmoor! 


2 days later, by pure luck I switched my day off, walked onto the obs patio and jammed into this beaut!





Sat here now in the latter half of June planning autumn birding, spring seems such a long time ago, that said, this one will take a lot of beating!
