Around Wales trip

What a cracker of a bird - the Glossy ibis at Borth.

I've been five times for this bird and this is only the second time I've seen it - great views today.

Part of the Yellowthroat twitch - note that everyone is excellently behaved.

Views were much better than this honest! What a superb little bird.
Not often do you get to visit all four compass points of Wales in a day, but we did today. Eddie, Alex, Alan and I visited Rhiwderyn during the morning where we were treated to brief but superb views of the Common Yellowthroat. Next on to Cosmeston for great views of the Lesser Scaup, a bird present for the past few winters. Back up through Ceredigion for the long staying Glossy Ibis which put on a tremendous show. Red Kites were in abundance on the journeys and kept us entertained while on the road. Great trip, superb birds and good company and good to catch up with old friends at various sites around Wales.


  1. It was "cracking". Thanks to all for your company. A great day and fantastic birds!
    PS Sally is slowly getting better.

  2. Was it the shock of you gripping her off with a Yellowthroat?
