Great White

Been searching for a Gwent Wryneck for the last couple of days with no luck at all.Decided to try again this morning at Uskmouth starting at Farmfield Lane.Got all the way down to the other end of the reserve when a phone call came through of a Great White Egret at Goldcliff Pools. So that was it,Started a series of running and walking stints.When i got to the roundabout there was another birder walking up Saltmarsh Lane.I gave him a shout of Great White Egret at Goldcliff but i don't think he was that bothered as his reply was Oh That's Nice.Back on my Way i got halfway down Warbler Alley and bumped in John O Sullivan who was pepping into the bushes at a Juv Whitethroat.By this time i was sweating buckets.So off the two of us went.Pulling into the carpark at goldcliff i noticed an egret flying from lagoon1.Raised the bins and there it was and then there it wasn't.It headed in the direction of Llanwern Steelworks.Although not having a good long view its on my Gwent List.Anyway here's some of the Bearded Tit Pics.
