Dorset Birding

It's been quite a while since I last uploaded a post on here due mainly to other commitments.
A few days away with my family to Swanage gave me the opportunity to visit Durlston Country Park. An early morning walk on the 4th September provided the following species:-
Northern Gannet 3, Shag 4, Great Black backed Gull 7, Herring Gull 9, Peregrine Falcon 1, Feral Rock Dove 35, Woodpigeon 9, Green Woodpecker 2, Common Stonechat 3, Grey Wagtail (2), European Robin 11, Common Blackbird 1, Wren 6, Dunnock 4, Greater Whitethroat 2, Common Chiffchaff 3, Long-tailed Tit 5, Blue Tit 4, Great Tit 2, Magpie 7, Jackdaw 25, Carrion Crow 5, Common Raven 2, Common Linnet 10 Eurasian Bullfinch 5.
Whilst walking the coastal path above the cliffs a Peregrine Falcon provided very close views while it rested between hunting sorties.
