I have recently been down to Poole, Dorset undertaking a few Vantage Point surveys, a very nice part of the world and one of mine and Christine’s favourite places.
The surveys have also given me a chance to undertake some photography; all water based with Cormorant, Shag and Red Breasted Merganser the highlights.
Some of the fish they are coming up with I could not identify with my limited knowledge, I know one is a Greater Pipefish, identified by Howard, many others I did not have a clue on.
Some photos below, some are a bit distant but the Shags in particular came in pretty close and were quite posy.
Just a pity that there not this common around the Thames Estuary.
