Dubious detours III

Another early morning trip to the Household Waste Recycling Centre in preparation for moving house produced what little excuse I needed for the week's most outrageous 'birder's detour' yet: one bit of Poole to another bit of Poole via Portland Bill. Well, the seawatching has been excellent (see post for Friday 6 May) and a Bee-eater and Red-backed Shrike had been seen at the Bill the previous day. I didn't see either, but a 2 hour seawatch produced another Pom Skua, Bonxie and Puffin as well as more usual fayre. Unlike Friday's bird, the Pom was close enough for a record shot in excellent light. Check out those spoons!
