Well, you may have noticed that I haven't updated this blog for a while now. My internets been playing up and i've not been able to get properly online for the few weeks.
Anyhoo, since the last update, rather a lot has happened. I left my job in Spain a tad earlier than expected to come back to Portland where i'm working as assistant warden at the bird observatory.
The autumns been a bit slow so far, plenty of common migrants but a distinct and disapointing lack of any goodies, the recent highlights being a nice "in the hand " Wood Warbler and a flyover Honey Buzzard, hopefully that will soon change though. Oh, and I also managed to jam in on the Audoins Gull at Seaton (unlike the other 4 birders from Portland i travelled down with).
Its unlikely that my internet acess will improve for some time so check out the obs website for all the latest sightings and possibly a few of my photographs every now and again.

I reckon I was the birder who had a squint at your scope to try and put you on the Audouin's outside the hide and said "Nah, you need to go in the hide to see it".
