What a Winter at Portland Harbour

Wednesday, 8th January 2014

Two posts in one day, and not for the first time!

I'm looking for an excuse to post this nice pic. of a Shag; well one I rather like anyway. They are always a joy to shoot... oops I mean photograph :-)

So what a winter it has been down at Portland Harbour 2013/14.  Three species of scoter, five grebes, three divers, four auks. Storm Petrel, Balearic Shearwater, and many more besides?! I haven't seen them all there, but thanks to the mild weather and in no small part to the Brunnich's, I've frequented the place much more regularly lately... and I plan to return tomorrow.
