Weekend round-up...

Quick round-up from the weekend just gone - a little ringed plover was a good find for Chard res by Dave Helliar and was still there up to yesterday evening (1st October) at least.

Dave H. and Andy G. also caught up with the Common Rosefinch in the Obs garden at Portland too and grab :

For myself, no such luck. Haven't had a chance to get out birding since I got back from Canada although a family outing to Lyme Regis on Sunday afternoon presented an opportunity to take a few photos.

Dunlin, Lyme Regis: R. Harris
This leggy, long-billed individual was hanging out with a curlew sand before
being flushed by a CWAD! The CS flew off but this one returned.
Presumably a female alpina on bill length.
