Rarities and Regulars...

Thanks to Dave Helliar for his weekly round-up of local birding goodies including the spectacularly performing Bonaparte's Gull at Radipole in Weymouth, a Black-winged Stilt at Abbotsbury, a drake Green-winged Teal that appeared briefly at Greylake RSPB reserve in Somerset and a scarce local migrant in the form of a drake Garganey briefly near Chard.
