Spot The Creeper

If you squint it may be possible to see the nice new shiny ring on its leg.

A Quiet walk around Saltmarsh lane in search of migrants started off slowly but picked up pace when a lone Swift flew through making me think did i actually just see that.I rattled off a few record shots. Now at the time i got enough on it to put Alpine swift straight in the bin.So given the date either a mega early Common or maybe a Pallid.Most probably a mega early Common but with the rubbish record shots looking into the hazy sun we may never no,unless it gets picked up again giving better views.

Gwent Please

Please could we have one of these in Gwent.On the wet field would  be my preferred spot but anywhere would do.

Another one of these showing well at Llandegfedd would also be nice.
