Great White Gwent tick
Great White Egret finally flops onto my Gwent list, another one that appears to have only stayed a few hours (last seen heading west).
Very little else at the pools. Boat Lane turned up half a dozen Sand Martins heading north, a Chiffchaff and a rather striking leucistic Wigeon (presumably the same as the bird seen last year by Weekendbirder). And, to round off, Barney has either found a mate, cloned himself or I'm seeing double.
Seems to be a female, you'd think it wouldn't last long sat on a nest with 'camouflage' like that.
Must try to get better photos before she moves on.
