My first day on the Isle of Portland and a brand new Blog which I hope will be of interest to the folk on the Isle of Portland and Weymouth, plus some of my past followers of SwindonBirder.

Hopefully there will be daily sightings and images of the wildlife I have recorded, plus some of my fishing exploits either at Radipole or along the coast here. If some of my postings are "No Sightings in today", it's only because the weather was seriously bad or I was otherwise engaged elsewhere. Enjoy.

Well I arrived at my new home at 3pm and after 6 hours of unpacking decided enough was enough and it was time for some shut eye.

However I did get a few seen and heard ticks from the house before I called it a day with a Goldfinch on the defunct TV aerial, a family of 3 young Herring Gulls on the neighbours chimney stack, a Collared Dove, Chiffchaff, House Sparrow and a very vocal Wren.

Masses of sedum and nasturtiums in the back garden and lots of bees to ID tomorrow. Also my first Silver-Y moth of the year and my first on Portland to get things rolling.
