More painting on Star, Dawn and I are getting there slowly. A quick break and a scan across the Fleet revealed several Dunlin, Ringed Plover and Sanderling. Further out and close to Chesil Beach a Redshank was knee deep in the water. Also about 2 Sandwich Terns, 2 Oystercatchers, a Carrion Crow and 3 Ravens. The latter making their way south along the Portland Road.

The biggest highlight though was an Osprey over Portland Harbour. This one though was a Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey which has been in the area now for a couple of days or so. More on this aircraft Here.

A very distant shot of the Redshank on The Fleet. My first this year.

A bit closer an Osprey.............
