Bufflehead in Dorset 7/3/10

Headed down to Dorset today to see the BUFFLEHEAD on The Fleet, Dorset. It was first seen yesterday evening, and after an anxious wait this morning for it's rediscovery, news finally came through, so me and a few others went straight down there.

To me it seemed a wild bird with no feather damage, it's rather nervous appearence when humans came within 100 meters of it and also it was first picked up on the sea off West Bexington slightly further west down the coast.

I think it was the 17th for Britain and certainly a first for me bringing my UK life list to 309.
