Ross's Gull

Pics of the Ross's Gull that's been around Weymouth for the last couple of days. Pics from Lodmoor today. This is the 1st Doret record since a bird at Stanpit in 1974!

First visit to Morden Bog today. The weather was far from ideal! Highlights were a breeding pair of Dartford Warbler, Common Crossbill and Raven.

Despite out best efforts, the Great Grey Shrike was not seen. We've had several attempts to see this species this year (sites in the New Forest & now Morden Bog) and have failed to pick it up. :(

The GGS is very elusive, I was around Morden for 2 hours on Monday but didn't see it, whereas on other occasions it will be the 1st bird you spot! I've visited Morden about 12 times this year and only seen it twice

It's a bit far for us to travel on a regular basis, so will have to fall back ob more local haunts in the New Forest.....however, I suspect we've missed the boat for now and will have to wait for the end of the year?
