On the 9th December:


A day in Weymouth, our first stop was Sandsfoot Castle overlooking Portland Harbour where we saw a Black-throated Diver, 6 Red-breasted Mergansers, 2 Razorbills and a Slavonian Grebe. Then we went to the other side of the harbour, where from The Verne overlooking the Naval Harbour we saw a Little Auk, then to Lodmoor seeing a Grey Phalarope. Finally, at Radipole Lake where there were lots of gulls, lots of Pochard and 5 Scaup.

In the garden in Portishead was a Brambling with a small flock of Chaffinches.


On a visit to Battery Point I saw 5 Purple Sandpipers on the high tide.
