Distant record shots only with the DSLR - would have probably been much better with digiscoping! See my pics from the same site 4 years ago.

The delightful trip of 4 birds was only present early morning on 26th - last seen around 07:15 am. So it pays to rise early sometimes!

Ruddy Duck, Radipole, Dorset

20 April 2008

No luck with the masses of warblers on the reserve, but these were very close in. Shame about the reeds in the way.

Willow Warbler, Portland Bill, Dorset

20 April 2008

Much better conditions today, with even some sun. There was a scattering of migrants at the Bill, including Redstart and Whitethroat

Whimbrel, Ferrybridge, Dorset.

19 April 2008

Very poor conditions on the south coast today, with strong easterly winds and rain. This was taken from the comfort of the car!
