Charmouth - Sun 31st July
3 Swift over late afternoon were the first I have seen all week the local swifts having left their nest during this last week of July. A quick seawatch early evening yielded a group of 8 Common Scoter and 2 Shelduck heading west. The Shelduck were just off the beach flying towards East Cliff, Lyme Regis. The Scoter were relatively close in too in a tight flock, first heading west then turning back and becoming strung out and then heading off strongly west with the stragglers making effort to rejoin into a tight group as they flew past Lyme Regis.
