The Bardsey Cretzschmar's Bunting

Last Wednesday Elfyn Lewis found Wales's first Cretzschmars Bunting on Bardsey. After initially giving everyone the run-around it finally localised to the Lighthouse compound and is now regularly coming to seed. I went over to this great little Island last week on Friday after work. However a no-show followed by another reappearance on Sunday meant a second trip in one weekend was needed to finally nail this mega! Apparently Lee Evans is now organising the bookings for anyone hoping to twitch this bird, on behalf of Bardsey Bird Obs and Colin the boatman. What a lovely little Island. Thanks to all the Obs staff and Colin the Star-boatman :-)
