Recent Birds

What do Turnstones do. Well, they turn stones obviously.




Just a few more Wheatear before they all disappear South to Africa.
There are still some to be found around Portland and Ferry Bridge, but not for much longer.







Masses of House Martins and Swallows were swarming around the Portland Bill area over recent days, prior to departing South.




A sleepy Woodie.


A Linnet is always worth a shot.


So is a Robin.


This Starling was searching the receding tidal area at Ferry Bridge.


A Gadwall pair residing at Radipole Lake Weymouth.


For some inexplicable reason, Chaffinches are few and far between in my local areas.
This one was observed at Arne reserve.


A small flock of Ringed Plover darting between areas of Ferry Bridge tidal water.

  1. Hallo Roy,
    Geweldig mooie blogpost!
    Vooral de Turnstone. Betere naam dan Steenloper, want hij draait de steentjes om ;-)
    Ook de Kneu (Linnet) , prachtig! De tapuiten zijn hier ook al weg. Prachtig de Boerenzwaluwen in vlucht! De trekvogels zijn op weg naar het Zuiden! Ik heb genoten van je foto's
    Groetjes,
    Maria

  3. Hi Roy,

    What a beautiful shot of the Linnet, I love it! Your photo's of the wheatear are also wonderful and I envy you. I didn't see any wheatear this year. Due to Covid I mostly stayde inthe neighbourhood and wheatear is not a common species in my area.
    Robin is always fun to see and hear. Also nice flightshots of the housemartins.

    The last photo is a very nice view, with lovely clouds.

    Best regards,
    Marianne

  4. Lovely shots, particularly the Wheatear. I have seen very few of them in my life although in certain parts around here they get the Black Eared Wheatear, which I am looking forward to seeing. Have seen them in Greece many moons ago.
