Today we’ve been walking the Pembrokeshire coast path from Strumble Head towards Pwll Deri in what can only be described as full on t-shirt weather. My main blog entry covering events will be up on Monday, but I just couldn’t resist sharing this little snippet right away. The reason I hear you ask?
I found this Wryneck in an area of Gorse just off the main path and couldn’t contain my excitement as it hopped through the vegetation and from fence post to fence post. It proved to be incredibly approachable and is by far the best bird I have ever self found. Things were about to get even better though as one of two Dartford Warblers who were also in the vicinity took a distinct dislike to our migrant visitor. It got closer and closer until finally they came face to face.
To see either of these species is always a treat, but to get them both together in the same photograph? That must be almost unheard of and I’m still buzzing now.
