Purple Patch

Getting like Scillies out here!

Seen something like this on the Portland website recently.


Caught up with the Cliff Swallow and saw the Purple Martin this morning as did all the others. A couple of lucky observers found a Blue Grosbeak and 28 unlucky observers spent all day walking randomly around the pig fields looking for it.

Now news of a White-tailed Tropicbird on Flores means we are all jumping island tomorrow.

Crimson Speckled. Both this and the SBG are real cripplers in a UK context. I've never caught either here.
Cheers

Hi Pete

Just knock those duffers out of the way, keep on birding.

Cheers Paul- just about to turn the moth trap on.

Hi Beachy, duff up the duffers!
