On Sunday 7th September, the awful weather improved to be merely cool, breezy and cloudy, much better!
We decided to pop to Porthcawl to look for another bird Gill particularly wanted to see, having missed one in Mallorca a few years ago. It showed whilst she was in the ladies......So what was it?
One of these:
Gill's first Wryneck , and unusually for this species, it showed well as soon as we arrived, and stayed in view for a long time, until flying at least a couple of hundred yards inland, and therefore being lost to view.
Very nice indeed!
