I grabbed a few hours birding at Radipole Lake while my girlfriend went for a job interview at nearby Dorchester. I bumped into this hyperactive Firecrest along the buddleia trail but the extremely dull light made it impossible to photograph although i did enjoy watching it for 45 minutes. Other highlights were the many Cetti's Warblers, Bearded Tits, 4 Med Gulls, Y-l Gull and the escaped Hooded Merganser.

A lovely sunny day with brilliant light but unfortunately it's a Sunday and the bird hides are full of dim-wits. People hanging out of windows firing cameras at pointless subjects, flasks hitting the floor and people getting lodged in the doors because they are either to fat or that they have forgotten they are carrying a rucksack on their backs - usually it's both. I gave up and spent the afternoon watching snooker.
