We found Shapwick Heath disappointing compared with Ham Wall: the distances between each hide were quite considerable.
The highlights were Bitterns booming, a Marsh Harrier and a Sparrow Hawk (no photo though).
Portland Bill and Weymouth
On a bitterly cold day and, for the most part, in poor light we spent the morning at Portland Bill and the afternoon and early evening at the two RSPB sites in Weymouth. We were treated to well over 50 different species. The highlights on land at Portland Bill were Wheatears and Meadow Pipits (even a ChiffChaff in the net at the Ornithological Centre) and a Short-eared Owl and at sea Guillemots and Razorbills. At Weymouth of special interest were Sand Martins, Spoonbills and a Marsh Harrier.
