Down Sunday, back Tuesday. here was a fair amount to choose from - Pallas's Warbler, Surf Scoter, Cattle Egret, but time was tight, so it was family trips to scenic places.
Cogden Beach - 24th - several Stonechats, lots of Blackbirds and black birds (Starlings, corvids). Plus a Red-throated Diver flying East. Nice view - familiar hunched appearance with a regular wriggle of the head.
Osmington White Horse Hill - 25th - 4 Wheatear, 2 Chiffchaff, plus Skylark, Meadow Pipit, Common Buzzard
