Rare Filled Gwent!

What a year its been with Megas such as Iberian Chiff and not forgeting that june day at Bleanavon.Who would have guessed Britain's 5th (I Think)Marmora`s Warbler turning up here in wonderful Gwent.
The Gwent year list ended on 191 i gave it a good go and tried to connect with everything that graced gwent this year but still missed a few.Another highlight for me was Gwents 2nd Lesserlegs on the evening of the 28th of September leaving early next morning with only a few Gwent birders connecting.
So all in all a great year for Gwent on the rarity front and a good year county listing.
Other highlights throughout the year were a few day trips to various parts, and a few days twitching as well, with the highlights being Bufflehead,Black Kite,Oriental Pratincole,Great Reed Warbler,bobolink,Solitary Sandpiper,Green Heron and American Bittern. 

Best Of The Rest
