2nd July

The lustre of rarity heritage that's burnished this week in the Portland annals has tarnished a little of late and today was far from able to bring back that shine. Singles of Whimbrel and Sand Martin provided the most minor of migrant interest on the land, whilst 45 Common Scoter, 7 Balearic Shearwaters and 4 Manx Shearwaters were as good as it got for the seawatchers.
