Birding Dorset

Today me and my mate Ken went up to Dorset to do some birding with our first stop at Thumb Lane in Weston to look for the Hume`s Leaf Warbler that has been seen there , we had to wait for over an hour for the bird to make an appearance and when it did show it showed well and was very vocal , but it was mostly at the top of the trees & always on the move making it quite hard to get shots of it .
We then went to Dorchester to look for an adult Rose-Coloured Starling and as we had already dipped this bird last week we had our fingers crossed for today and it worked as the bird showed but only for a short while , we then went for a look at Lodmoor in Weymouth where we saw a male and female Western Marsh Harrier`s , on then to Portland Bill where 2 Short-Eared Owls showed very well in the top fields , the day ended at the fleet at Abbotsbury where we saw 8 male Greater Scaup and a female Merlin that photographed at dusk .
