   Another look around Portland, produced very little again, except a Black Redstart and 2 Purple Sandpipers. A raven feeding on a Gull carcass was a nice bonus though! Oh well better than nothing, huh! Return to Portland Harbour saw us seeing the same things again, except this time the Velvet Scoters were both there! An Eider, 3 Common Scoter, Black-necked Grebes and Slavonian Grebes were also seen.

   After splitting up with the Stag party, i went around to Radipole, for food and a quick look around. Lots of Med Gulls again in the car park.

 On the way back home, i stopped off to see a juvenile Glaucous Gull at the Apex Pools, Burnham-on-Sea today, shame about the light!!! Although it showed really well. Hope it stays until it brightens up!!!!
