Golden oriole still there
Despite the atrocious weather conditions I joined JR, Carl and Tony Kingfisher on a trip to Cemlyn to search for the male golden oriole this morning. Having got soaked through twice and retreated to the car we decided to give it a third go and suddenly John shouted out he got the oriole flying across the field infront of us! Amazing close views of this stunner as it landed in a hedge near us and then flew across the field again and dropped down at the bottom of a hedge to shelter from wind and rain and remained there for a while giving all birders present a chance to see it. A welsh tick for me. I Called in at Conwy RSPB on way and got my first swifts of the year.
