1) Yellow Warbler-Portland. My 1st American passerine in UK & Europe!
2) Isle of Scilly Trip August, Wilson's Storm Petrel, Great Shearwater, Cory's Shearwater, Sabine's Gull, Wryneck, Common Dolphins etc...
3) American Waders in Dorset, Baird's Sandpiper, Buff-breasted Sandpiper, Least Sandpiper, Spotted Sandpiper , Pectoral Sandpiper and the Stilt Sandpiper!!
4) Wryneck on Portland Bill- Amazing close up encounter with a juvenile Wryneck showing down to a few metres at the Obs Quarry.
