Western Orphean...

Pleased to say Andy Grinter managed to get to see the Western Orphean warbler in Pembrokeshire at the weekend. In his own words:

Only managed one photo. Bird was at very close quarters at times but the garden was full of apple trees and I couldn't focus, so frustrating! Very well organised, 40 birders a time allowed into the garden and after all had seen it the next 40 changed over. When I left it was said only 120 birders had turned up as no more were queuing and photographers were allowed back in again. All simple with parking in the nearby field.

What a pity all twitches aren't that civilised! Not only that, Andy also managed to see one of the male two-barred crossbills in the Forest of Dean on the way back!  Cracking weekend I'd say.
