Spring keeps on springing

An early morning pottering around Uskmouth,...

... should have gone to Goldcliff.

Another troll round for Cetti's Warblers produced very little in the way of bycatch. It also meant I was at the wrong end of the reserve when the Black-winged Stilt arrived. 

By the way, the bird looks like a male to me (very black and glossy on the mantle); head and neck plumage is very variable and, going on a conversation I half overheard, may have caused a Piccadilly/Bakerloo moment for some.
