I spotted this from way up on a cliff-top on a hot day in Dorset whilst looking for birds. It drifted sedately around the shallow waters for a while before being joined by another fish and heading off. As for the birds, it was a successful day, and I'll be posting some of the results in forthcoming blog entries.
