Finally something worth blogging about

A Call off the real filthy one had me dashing down to Goldcliff Pools for this Gwent First.A Good 45 Minutes passed until it was picked back up.It did show really well flying along the sea wall and six feet above our heads.

If you look closely i think someone has spotted me taking this picture.

Another Mega for Gwent!

The Yellowthroat showed really well this morning in stunning sunshine.Despite a few moans of bad behaviour off some in my opinion everyone was well behaved.

Not a bad weekends birding was had.Started off in Calshot for the Spanish Sparrow had a second look at the Junco.Made our way back to Newport and re found the Glossy ibis.Round 3 of the Goosander Survey took place Sunday with poor results but 3 Cracking Iceland Gulls made up for that.
