A trip up to Dorset today with our first stop at Lodmoor to look for a Bonaparte`s Gull that has been showing for a while now . And after a bit of a search we got nice views of the bird but it was always a bit distant to get a nice shot . Also seen was a Mediterranean Gull and European Spoonbill .
We then went out to Portland Bill where we were lucky to see a Little Owl just before the heavy rain set in . By now the rain was very heavy so we sheltered by the cafe on the bill and did a sea watch and that was a very good move as we saw a European Storm Petrel , numerous Northern Gannet , 8 Norther Fulmar , 9 Manx Shearwater , numerous Common Guillemot and a single Common Dolphin . We then headed for home stopping on route at Ferrybridge where 10 Little Tern were nice to see .
