Trip today to Arne in Dorset.
Target Birds- Spoonbill, Avocet and Dartford Warbler.
Briefly - 8 Spoonbills found!
I saw 2 Dartford Warblers including one up and singing on a bush really close!
We dipped the Avocets!
we then went to Swanage to a Country Park next to the sea and saw a Shag!
There were other birds including great views of a Peregrine hunting at Swanage.
Hundreds of Godwits - lots of Brent Geese -
Mammals as shown - this was one Stag and his Deer!
We saw enormous numbers of these plus a huge Stag who was lying on the ground - with the biggest antlers!
So 3 Year ticks!
The Dartford Warblers were special as there dont appear to be many about.
Must get some Dinner!
Bob will try for the Slaty- backed Gull tomorrow - of course it showed today despite the tip not working!
