Mealy Roll

The best day of the spring so far on Portland today, a good variety of stuff on the land and passing by on the sea. Bird of the day goes to this Mealy Redpoll trapped and ringed in the Obs garden this morning

Most noticable bird today was Common Redstart, with around 40 on the southern half of the island. This male was in our back yard at lunchtime and a another bird was in the front garden. My excuse for the rubbish photo is that it was taken through our mucky kitchen window.
One of the many Whimbrel that went East this morning
