Portlnad bill and Weymouth

I had a nice two days birding around the Bill and Weymouth. There was nto much around in the way of migrants. Highlights
Garganey - 4, 3 males and a female. At radiploe lake
Hobby- Flying through Radipole lakes
Hooded merganser - yep, the Hoodies still at Radipole sleeping most of the time. But very close.
Marsh harrier- Radipole
Pom skua - Off the bill, in seawatch
Arctic skua- Off the Bill
`Manx shearwater - Off the bill
Little gull - 2 of the Bill
Red throated diver - 2 off the Bill
Great grey shrike - Wyke down

So it was a nice trip, but missed out on several bird species by a matter of minutes (pied fly). Also dipped on Hoopoe.
The famous Hoodie at Radipole

Great grey shrike - Finally after 5 dipps!
