Firecrest, Dorset, 26th Jan.

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.
