Grey Sunday

It was a bit of a Grey Sunday around Portland and Weymouth yesterday weather wise. Fortunately it was brightened up by some smart birds, the memory of which was enough to cheer me along on the way into work this morning on Blue Monday - the most depressing day of the year, apparently. As well as a handsome male Black Redstart at Chesil Cove, a female type was also present. A few pictures of this and some other highlights of the day below.
Black Redstart, Chesil Cove
Just as confiding as the male
Always a pleasure to bump into this species
It's been a good winter for approachable Great Northern Divers
This one was close in off Portland Castle
A Kestrel at Portland Bill was a bit bedraggled
The Bill quarry Little Owls have a bit more shelter
Male Red-breasted Merganser near Portland Castle
Wren, Portland Bill
I was able to photograph this Dartford Warbler at Portland Bill out of the car window
On the way home, a Goldcrest was singing over the traffic noise in downtown Weymouth
Med Gull is virtually guaranteed in the Radipole Lake car park at this time of year
