Portland Weekend

Another good weekend at Portland earlier this month. The highlight was the Arctic Warbler twitch, a lifer for us all. Yellow-browed Warbler at Reap Lane, a Lesser Whitethroat at the Obs along with Bittern, Pectoral Sandpiper and Bearded Tit at Radipole were all year ticks for me. We also enjoyed prolonged views of Water Rail while looking for the Spotted Crake. Natuarlly it showed on the Sunday evening. A juvenile Spoonbill at Lodmoor concluded the weekend.
