Hi all,
Sunday 14 Sept I observed a  single Arctic Tern in breeding plumage in
Portland harbour no doubt the result of the rough weather we have been
experiencing.  This is the second record I have for Portland harbour of a
bird in breeding plumage.
The bird was very close just off the Lee Breakwater, flying up and down
Basic description:- Red bill, black cap, upper wings and mantle grey
contrasting with white upper tail and rump, underparts light grey, black
trailing edge to the wings.
