A bit of an arrival

Goldcliff and its immediate environs were, at least in Gwentish terms, sinking under the weight of passerine migrants this morning. Gropper, Yellow and White Wagtail, Wheatear, Redstart and Lesser Whitethroat all put in an appearance, ably supported by Golden Plover, Ruff, Spotshank, Greenshank and Whimbrel. How terribly super,... no really,... how terribly super.

Wheatear, so named because 'white-arse' was just too rude; terrible all this rudeness, although factually accurate of course.
