More Portland

The Dipperettes have taken a liking to Portland Bill. A bracing walk along the cliffs, some excellent artery-clogging fare from the Café and a quick game of cricket. Somewhere in all this there’s a chance to sneak a look for passing birds and take some pics.

Last week we wandered up the cliffs, which are alive with flora slightly past their peak. One of these is Sea Samphire - any information on the others welcome. We didn’t get as far as the Autumn Ladies Tresses.

We saw some nice fossil shells in various blocks of rocks, and a smashing ammonite. We couldn’t take it home unfortunately. Not without making someone’s beach hut collapse.
