Portland 19-4-14

April 20, 2014  •  1 Comment

What a great day I had today, I got up early when Elaine went to work, I shot off to Portland, I started at Barleycrates Lane, quite a lot of Wheatears here at 8:00 along with Linnets, little else though, left there and headed off to Reap Lane, got the joy of joys my first ever sighting of a Pied Flycatcher, best bit was, it started off in a field then flew towards me past the car and then sat on a couple of car wing mirrors, Brilliant.

My mate Frank turned up but it didn't show again, so we headed off to the top field farm, saw some distant Redstart, but got close to the first Whitethroat of the year, heard but still haven't seen 2 Grasshopper Warblers saw another couple of Redstarts, then Dennis arrived, saw an amazing sight of a Kestrel making a kill and eating it on a hay bail right in front of us, we ended up on the cliffs above above Portland Bill where we got Fulmar and Skylark, what a good day again.
