Common Yellowthroat ( easy on a Sunday morning)

With the all weekend pass given by my wife, I joined Bradders Jnr and Snr and Blow Monkey to go and see the very smart and bright Common Yellowthroat in Gwent. It showed immediately as we walked up the hill in the hedgerow but very low down. We watched it for about an hour and a half, with me going oooohh and aaarrrhh as it got closer to the crowd of about 150 people. The record shots below don't do it any justice. Anyway as most birders did, we went along to see Dipper, Lesser Scaup, Red Kite but dipped the Bonaparte's Gull. A Great day out, and some great birds too....
