Underbarn, Portland Harbour
Wednesday November 29th 2017
In the last blog entry I said how I failed to find the goosanders that I wanted to film.
Well I found them today.
There are two goosanders in the video, both females, along with cormorants and red-breasted mergansers.
I was actually here looking for a common sandpiper which I had heard calling last week and suspected of being the spotted sandpiper that had been at Abbotsbury until recently. I found it and confirmed that it was just a normal common sandpiper.
Behind me a heron was getting annoyed by an inquisitive egret.
All this was filmed from the same spot at the edge of Portland Harbour in the space of about 30 minutes!
